The Ancient Bou-Taoshi Sand Game Creates Beautiful Home Pieces

Being in the 21st century and still learning ancient rituals and traditions, such as the 'Bou-Taoshi' sand game, will keep vintage charm alive. This ancient Japanese game requires that players create sand heaps. Once their heap is finished, they are to place a branch in the middle, each player takes turns flicking away some sand; the first player whose branch falls, loses.

These heaps were often considered divine representations and have moved on to become symbolic modern home pieces. They offer simple and cute designs for sand vases that owners can use for single stems and flowers for very minimalist modern decor ideas. The vases are extremely simple and their sand-color tone makes them a flexible piece for any room.
