Sengoku Bune in a Bottle
Date Added: 13 December 2012
The Sengoku Bune is a Japanese merchant ship that carried rice and sake in the early 1600's. It was occasionally used for in action during the raid of Okinawa in 1609. The ship is set in a Japanese Ramune bottle that is distinctive for the glass ball in the top that seals it. The ball is pushed into the bottle to open it for drinking. I chose the bottle specifically for the challenge. Not only did I have to get it into the bottle but also over the marble.
