2016 Calendar Katori Buta Pop Art Print

from 25.00

2016 Katori Buta Calendar:

Katori Buta [かとりぶた・蚊取り豚], literally translates as ‘mosquitto-removing pig’, is a small ceramic pig that is brought out in the summer to ward off bugs, mosquitoes particularly. Inside burns a green spiral incense, called katori senkō (‘mosquito-killing incense’). The incense and the piggy burner are a staple in many Japanese homes, and are customarily associated with the summer image in Japan.

Inspired by manga illustrations, the print features ミーンミーン (min min) in the top left corner, setting the scene of the Japanese hot summer’s day. “Min min”, an onomatopoeia for the sound that cicadas make in the Japanese language, is heard for weeks on end at the height of the summer season. 

Just like the warm memories of the summer past, the Katori Buta print will keep you warm in the winter, reminding of the warmer days to come.
