Kurogaki Netsuke of Horse Licking its Leg

An unusual composition of a horse with rather small head lying on its side and nuzzling its right hind hoof.  The artist has cleverly used a piece of wood which is light across the back of the horse and almost black elsewhere.  The eyes appear to be inlaid in a lighter but undetermined material
