11cm long, 100grams .
Two toned ebony, inlaid eyes.
A sumo netsuke .
A staghorn bat.
Below a shoki and oni group of wood with pigments.
I always loved the coiled rats.
So I tried to carve one for me.
What I learned is , how difficult
it is to do so and how wonderful the
15cm cucumber of boxwood.
I did not copy an old piece, took the form of
the dcoration only and added a snail.
And a little Tiger Ojime of boxwood.
A Bambuku Chagama of Ebony.
A pot on fire , a tanuki coming out with red eyes.
