The box to storage of the famous tea utensils are also considered valuable in the Japanese tea ceremony.

Some of the most valuable tea utensils are protected in five or six layers of boxes, because of new box has been made to protect previous box whenever changed owners at different times. In this work, I worked to "preserve" the items on display by using conservation materials and enacting actions that are typically used for the preservation of artwork and valuables. This "Modernology Preservation" was ruled by this question:  “What is functional and beautiful preservation?”
