Each dragon is initially engraved in deep gold onto thick cotton stock, then the image is laminated onto heavy wood. Next they are richly covered in satiny lacquer. You can see the depth of the engraved surface, which captures the light in a very special way, under the heavy application of the luscious lacquer. The dimensions of this box are 5.5 x 5.5 and 1.75" in height, and has black sides and gold trim. This entirely handcrafted all wood product is produced using the centuries old tradition and method of hand pouring multiple layers of lacquer. Each layer is individually hand-polished, taking many days. This is the only way to achieve the deep resonating colors and the luxurious glowing finish for which lacquered items are treasured. The resulting patina is truly gorgeous, as well as being heat and alcohol resistant.
