An iron phoenix car shped insence burner by Tanaka Muneyoshi

Tanaka Muneyoshi is a craftman of Takase Kozan studio. He was good at making Articulated iron figures of animals(Jizai okimono). Especially dynamic iron works compared to other craftman in Kozan studio.
This work weights very heavy. But is built up by hammering. It needs a massive power. I think it is a work to be able to make only in his youth.
He is famous for Jizai Okimono. And also this work can be maved by iron wheels. So, we can say it is a JIzai Okimono too.
