Three Samurai mythical attendants to the patron warrior and mythic hero Benkei carry an oversized conch tightly bound by ropes that also secures a sharpened sword, that sits gently over the lips of the shell. The detail here is beautifully rendered; delicate flowers and pattern are inscribed onto the happi coats of the samurai. The conch is sumptuous and ridged. Their countenances communicating a peaceful stoicism. The bottom of the netsuke is arched with graceful green bamboo and a signature in an inscribed oval reserve. Gyokusho is a famous carver recorded in "Contemporary Netsuke" by Miriam Kinsey.
