Add more interest and perspective with this handmade Japanese Toro sitting lantern. This traditional lantern like many aspects of Japanese culture is a synthesis of similar Chinese designs. It integrates the five concepts of Buddhist cosmology into its geometry: the section touching the ground as chi (earth), the next section as sui (water), the illuminated section as ka (fire), the ceiling section as kaze (wind), and the skyward section as sora or ku (heaven or void). The Toro beautiful alone takes another dimention when viewed through this lens.
