Project Description

Ivory Netsuke of Shojo and Turtles by Nobuaki

A laughing shojo holds a large overflowing sake bowl for four turtles which lap up the alcohol, one falling backwards.  The large netsuke is a riot of detail, notably the decorations of the kimono, a large ladle lying beneath beside reishi fungus, symbolic of long life

Signed: Nobuaki.  Circa 1890
