Private Collection

An elegant sashi netsuke, smooth and highly polished, in the form of a dragonfly with folded wings, carved from fine, close grained ivory, cream color with surface patina, engraving with sumi in the veins of the wings, inlaid light horn for the eyes, himotoshi on the insectís thorax. A slender and graceful piece, the fragile wings strengthened by doubling them thus reinforcing the seemingly thin blades of ivory from the underside, where the artist has meticulously rendered the dragonflyís segments, which in nature number only ten. While the dragonflyís four back legs are folded, its front legs are seen stroking its mouth. Clearly the work of an accomplished netsukeshi about whom we have no further information, as Kamasa's career seems to have eluded the archives in our library.
