This fine netsuke depicts the 10th century Chinese immortal Liu Hai, Japanese Gama Sennin. He is dressed in tattered clothes, right hand holding a three-legged toad, which is crawling on the sennin's left shoulder. This netsuke is considered auspicious and conducive to good fortune. It is one of the most popular motifs among multitudes of netsuke designs.

This is a very well carved netsuke from a quality piece of ivory. Both composition and detail are sharply observed. This figure of Gama Sennin and Toad are unusual. For unlike most other earlier renditions, instead of his jagged appearance, the handsome features of the Sennin heightens the realism of this netsuke, and successfully convey the sublime spirit of the Gama Sennin in a new light. It is indeed a unique realization of the carver Shushin, a remarkably prolific 20th century artist whose works continue to gain greater recognitions.
