Antique Japanese Netsuke
Gama Sennin
Carrying Big Frog

Signature: unsigned. Circa: early 19th Century
h.2.5 in.(6.25cm), w.1 in.(2.5cm), d.1 in.(2.5cm)
Condition: Excellent

This large cream colored netsuke represents the beloved Gama Sennin grasping an enormous frog. Broad deep cutting of the dense unyielding antler material has allowed a heavy accumulation of dark patina on this piece, which in contrast to the soft polish on the creamy masses, creates a virile graphic quality which is especially handsome on the back, and comprises all the familiar aspects of this character, including his benevolent _expression, his round pot-belly, and his coat of mugwort leaves. Somewhat worn from age and handling, the smooth surface, polished to a soft shine, has not lost any of its details. The frog, representing prosperity, is firmly in hand as Gama looks out smiling, upright on bare feet. --RW
