Cricket cage made from bone OTH-252

This beautiful cage is used for a cricket or grasshopper.The scholars of ancient China would use them to bring the natural world onto their desks.Today they are still used, but the men take them to the tea houses and have competitions as to which cricket makes the most melodic noises. It is made from bone, and the top is carved with an image of an owl. The door opens upwards.
