Bizen Woodcutter

 A Japanese incense burner in the shape of a woodcutter. Bizen ware, 18th century,  notice the "metallic" glaze.  It belonged to my father, one the favourite pieces in his collection.  Because he couldn't get proper incense after he emigrated, he made his own from scented woods and oils.
