The Kasuga-style lantern originates from the Kasuga Shrine in Nara, Japan, where over 3,000 assorted stone lanterns stand to be lit on special occasions. A relief carving depicts one of the many protected deer who live in the forest around the shrine. This traditional Japanese Lantern is perhaps the most popular of the tachi-gata-style or pedestal stone lanterns which can be placed on any firm flat surface capable of bearing their weight. We carve the Kasuga stone lantern from the highest quality black & white (salt & pepper) granite and drill it for electrical wiring. Comprised of 6 pieces.
