Raden is a decorative technique using the linings of shells with a lustrous, iridescent nacre or mother-of-pearl layer, which are then cut into pieces and inlayed or glued onto the lacquerware surface, creating intricate, tasteful patterns. These range from ordered geometric patterns to elegant floral motifs, through to intricate depictions of religious figures and deities.
