Antique Japanese Netsuke
Samurai Bushido
Lending A Hand

Sig: Shinkomasa Circa: Meiji Period, (1800-1912)
H 2.25in.(5.8cm.), W 1.25in.(3.2cm.), D 1.2in.(3.0cm.)
Condition: Excellent

This netsuke size ivory carving depicts a dignified samurai, with umbrella in hand, crouching slightly to uplift a man who has just fallen to his knee _ an unusual scene of chivalry and compassion known as Bushido; which is the samurai spirit nurtured in Japanese Buddhism.

The carving is a simple story told most elegantly by a master carver. This miniature sculpture stands barely over 2 inches tall; but the remarkable complexity in the composition, the finest details rendered in every fingers and toes, and the super fine scrimshaw work are almost too intricate for our naked eyes. Although the faces on these figures are smaller even than that on a quarter, one can't help but to notice the vivid facial expressions that are so magnificently realized in the situation.

The sculpture is signed on a small chip and inlayed on the ivory base. The carving is likely from the late Edo to early Meiji Period (1800-1912). The ivory has a beautiful even cream patina. It is well preserved, there is no damage and not a single hairline on the piece. Absolutely an important art piece for serious collectors!
