Solid Silver Lion Cufflinks 1998 Metropolitan Museum of Art NYC
Sterling Silver Lion Cufflinks by oas New York™
This pair of samurai katana sword KARAJISI MENUKI cufflinks was one of the gift shop offerings from the 1998 Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York City) Japanese art of war exhibition.
MENUKI - meaning decoration or ornamentation in Japanese, the lion on this pair of cufflinks was once part of an antique samurai sword's handle ornament (see picture for references). Traditionally made of brass, sterling silver or even gold, these sword handle ornaments carry significant identification of the owner of any particular blade.
If you believe that the universe is but a sea of energy, by implication, the empowering nature of signs and motifs conjures great inspiration for the individual, the warriors of the ancient world realize via innate sense and battle experiences - having a lion or dragon motif is sure to conjure more courage than a pair of ants.
Made of solid sterling silver, the pair was cast from the original sword handle MENUKI.
Limited quantity and collectible nature made this pair an ideal gift consideration for graduation, anniversary, promotion, birthday or simply self empowerment.
