Small square bowl with 3D design of four kanji character idioms  吾唯足知 (I am just satisfied with what I am) of Zen. This photo shows “足” which means “Foot” but also means “be satisfied with” .

The design comes up with the fact that Kanji consists of two or three parts.  For example,  ”吾” (means I ) consists of ”五”and ”口” .   “知”(means know) consists of “矢”and ”口”.

Water basin in Ryoanji-temple is famous for this.
