DERKACHENKO: A SET OF SHICHI FUKUJIN MAMMOTH IVORY NETSUKE
By Alexander Derkachenko, signed Derkachenko
Ukraine, contemporary

Derkachenko has always had a special talent for carving faces, evident in this set. In this work, he has carved the Shichi Fukujin, the Seven Lucky Gods of Japan. Hotei is laughing happily, as is Ebisu, the god of fishermen, who is holding a big fish he just caught. Fukurokuju, the god of wisdom and longevity, with the typical elongated forehead, and Daikoku, the god of wealth, naturally also appear happy. On the other hand, Jurojin, next to a crane, and the martial Bishamon, appear rather morose. The only female Lucky God, Benten, is playing the lute.

HEIGHT 3.3 - 4.1 cm

Condition: Excellent condition.
