Kyo-yaki matcha bowl with "Kukurizaru" (tethered monkeys) motif made by Kôun Miyagawa (1938-) at the Ryukoku kiln in Kyoto.

The “kukurizaru” depicts the image of a monkey stuck with its arms and legs tied around it.
The running monkey is compared to human "desire", while the image of a tethered and immobile monkey signifies the suppression of desire. By writing a wish on this "Kukurizaru" and hanging it, it is said that "by holding a wish, a wish will come true."
