  Japanese Folklore  


The teapot pictured here shows the often used symbol of a bamboo tree. Bamboo is revered among most Asian cultures and Japan is no exception. Bamboo is a long livign plant so it is often regarded as a symbol of long life. Its' most notable feature however, is that it can often withstand the strongest of storms and been known to be bent right to the ground and not be broken. It is oftne regarded to be a symbol for the desired virtues of strength, flexibility and endurance and becuase of its' straight lines many regard bamboo as a symbol of integrity.
