A Japanese drop-shaped bronze vase worked with a remarkable depth that transforms the work into a breathtaking three-dimensional scene with a majestic bear in relief in the center as it stands powerfully on a rock.
The bear is portrayed with a precision that does justice to its majesty. The details of its fur, its powerful paws and the expression of its face give an extraordinary life to the animal. The vase offers a sense of depth and dynamism to the entire scene, bringing the bear and the rock to the foreground in a masterful way.
This vase is signed under the base.
