Two netsuke that I got from W.C.Müller:

I love tanuki.  Here we have an ebony tanuki with red eyes, cause he is coming out of the hot pot. Silver ring, boxwood

The third one is the first bambuku chagama that I made of iron with silver lid and rings. Signed HAYEN

I carved this nice long dragon from a piece of antler, there was a curve in the antler, allowing me to carve the head and horn.

I got this piece of wood from W.C.Müller, who made simple but powerful netsuke from such materials. It is nearly

white on the revers. I added a menuki and three silver ants. It is a nice scepter. Two toned wood, I love that.

A 19th century hirado gama sennin left and another

hirado tsuru sennin in very fine quality on the right side.

The shoki oni group is a copy of an old netsuke that is carved in ivory.

I did my wooden shoki in a bigger version with some pigments .
