Samurai Boshido Manju Netsuke

This antique ivory manju netsuke depicts a seminal moment of true nobility. Kanshin was a wise and powerful general who was known for his leadership and the council he gave to Ryhuho who became the emperor of China and the founder of the Han dynasty 206 B.C. One day, while Kanshin was walking through town, a ruffian braggart blocked Kanshin’s path and refused to let him pass unless Kanshin’ crawled between the ruffian’s legs. The general obliged and crawled underneath the braggart’s legs--- to the amusement of onlookers. Kanshin then continued on his way.

To not to be attached to a particular stance, to not be beholden or conformed to the rigidity of pride makes us more fluid, expansive, powerful and present. These are the teachings at the core of Taoism. This moment of surrender as a doorway to true power is intricately depicted on the front of this manju. Flip the netsuke over and you will see finely wrought patterns that provide depth and texture. Hold this Edo era ivory netsuke in your hands and you are beholden to finely wrought art and a poignant reminder of our inner nobility.
