270 years ago. This happened. Do you see? The abalone border? The creator was so proud of his work that he even signed one of the walls in abalone. And it is worth bragging in my Master Asahara’s stead. He is the only one who, 30 years ago when two sections at the entry were in clear need of repair, stepped up with a sample and said “I can do it.” And do it did he! Once you are told those two sections are not original, the carefully discerning eye finally sees a slight difference in the hue of the clay. But the shell, bang on.
