Bronze alloy and silver vessel with a v-shape profile, narrow foot and wide rim. The vessel has a regular woven pattern of dark blue and bronze colour against a background of silver. The pattern repeats perfectly over each of the four quarters of the vessel, hence the name, 'Hibiki', which is Japanese for 'echoes'.
