ANYONE ELSE FEEL LIKE A BEACH HOLIDAY IN EDO JAPAN?
Perhaps one would encounter a similar scene as on our cover image. We hope that ‘diving’ into our catalog may evoke a similar feeling. After all, you will encounter all kinds of creatures, odd beings, and legendary figures in here, offering a small glimpse into a world which has inspired Japanese art throughout the centuries. It is truly wonderous how one can travel back in time by holding a netsuke in the hand, and while many of you will not be able to handle them until after the sale, we hope that our descriptions and photography may compensate for the time being. Now without further ado, please do DIVE IN!
