Katachi-bori – 容 彫 – is an expression in conjunction with the menuki that specifies that the peripheral walls of the menuki define contours of the plastic object. So we can say, for example, menuki in the form of a plant or a horse. I also noticed a misinterpretation that these are round-shaped motifs, such as fruit, which seems to be cut in half and thus acquires realistic 3D contours.
