Kozuka with New Year's Decorations

Description This kozuka is decorated with symbols of New Year's, including pine boughs. Spiny lobsters are commonly eaten at New Year's as a sign of longevity. They are associated with a long life because their tails are curved like the back of an elderly person's. This is part of a mounted set.
Provenance William T. / Henry Walters Collection, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
