Unveiling an Ancient Japanese Art for the fist time in Lebanon..

To celebrate the festive season, Purrl Gallery organized an event on Friday the 13th of December 2013 to salute Japanese Artist Eiji Uemura.

After Tokyo, Hong Kong and Kuala Lampur, Beirut had the honor to receive Mr. Uemura who demonstrated before an audience of pearl lovers his unique Maki_e technique on Pearls.

Result, beautiful handmade pieces whereby each pearl had an identity of its own defined by intricate drawings and embellished with gold powder and laquer.

A 1300 years old Japanese Art was revamped and put back to life under the artistic direction of Third Generation Fisherman and Pearl Culturer Eiji Uemura.
