Antique Small Japanese Netsuke
Lotus Root
With Bronze Seed Caps

Condition: o.a. very good!

Lotus root is a popular vegetable in China and Japan (where it is known as Renkon), and is known to be an incredibly versatile and nutritious food. Its root, or more precisely, its rhizome (an underground horizontal stem) is found in the muddy bottom of ponds and lakes, its location indicated by the lotus flower floating just above the water’s surface. This tiny, ojime like netsuke, is made of eight fitted slats of pale ivory, put together like a barrel and wrapped and capped with copper. Slightly reminiscent of the Dharma Wheel and the Eight Noblefold Path, its simple but stylized design calls forth its complex history as a religious symbol and as an asian culinary staple. A unique piece in very good condition.
