Oribe Japanese Stone Lantern
First produced in the Momyana period by warlord Furuta Oribe, Oribe Granite Lanterns are among the oldest Japanese stone garden lanterns. The stone lantern is a classic representation of a “planted” lantern style due to its lack of base at the bottom. The Oribe Lantern has a Buddha carving at the lantern’s base, often thought to be that of a praying missionary, resulting in it being called the Christian lantern. The lightbox has two wooden windows, one on the front and the back. There is a sun on the left side of the lightbox and a moon on the right side. The Oribe Japanese Stone Lantern comes in four sizes. It is pre-drilled with a hole to insert electrical and includes 5 separately hand-carved pieces. Made of hand-carved granite. Our monk is a deep carving just like the original ones during the Momyana Period.
