Kara Shishi Netsuke

Beautifully carved 19th Century netsuke with bold delineation, compact form and classic symmetrical composition, rugged hand tools quality with deep engraved line works. The netsuke represents a temple lion with hieratic features and rhythmic patterning. The forward mane of the beast is sectioned into five curling masses ending in knots, the remainder parted into petal shapes that fold backward toward the lionís five curling tails. The ears are laid back against the body, the brow is deeply furrowed above the glaring eyes, flared nostrils and bared teeth. The king of beast crouches over a ball, claws gripping the surface, the fur at the elbows and feet gathering in spirals. The patina on the right is noticeably lighter than pale gold on the left side. Although unsigned, this netsuke demonstrates a high level of artistry which, along with its age, mark it as a work of integrity.
