A TALL IVORY NETSUKE OF GAMA SENNIN
Unsigned
Japan, 18th century, Edo period (1615-1868)

A large and powerful ivory netsuke of Gama Sennin stroking his beard and holding a small toad, another very large toad is on his back. Gama has an emaciated rib cage, a finely carved flowing robe with long draping sleeves and his face is expressively carved. Good, asymmetrical himotoshi through the back.

HEIGHT 10.2 cm

Condition: Good condition with age cracks. It appears the netsuke was once heavily inked, as vestiges remain in the crevices.
Provenance: British collection.
