A superb example of early Japanese lacquer is brilliantly evidenced in an inkstone box that is one of the outstanding rarities in "The Transcendent Spirit: Synthesizes Experience, Embodies Mastery, Transforms Material, Is Beauty," the show that Lesley Kehoe Galleriesof Melbourne has assembled for display on the fifth floor of the Fuller Building, 41 East 57th Street. The box is an exemplar of the Igarashi School, which flourished during the Momoyama-Early Edo Period (16th and 17th centuries), and it is richly decorated with autumn grasses.
