The square scrolled motif often seen in Greek architecture i thought to have travelled on the silk route to China then via to Japan. The motif became popular in Japanese art and has often been used in various mediums. This bronze usubata uses this foreign motif for the legs. The simple yet strong expression this usubata embodies is appealing to the senses.
