Project Description

Early Ivory Netsuke of Tekkai Sennin

Carved from a fine sliver of ivory, for all that with extraordinary movement

Unsigned. Circa 1750

Height: 7.4 cm

Interestingly, although there are old himotoshi at and below waist height, I think this may originally have been attached around the neck, as the beard and top of the staff provide natural himotoshi.
