手神について 神宿る、神奈川の手。
手神について 神宿る、神奈川の手。

“Divine hands” of fine craftsmen in Kanagawa, Japan

Detailed marquetry, small woodwork.
It's as if God dwells in his hands, which are carefully and precisely finished.

Odawara, Yamakita, Zama, Kawasaki.
Just as the creators of Kanagawa store letters, they hold their thoughts in their hands, shape them, and send them off.
