Kinko was an artist who painted fish but would neither eat or harm them. For reason of his virtue, the Dragon King sent forth a giant carp and invited Kinko to visit his palace in the sea world. During the return from his sojourn, the Bodhisattva Kannon bestowed Kinko a buddhist scroll, and made him a sennin (immortal) for his compassion. This is an intricately carved netsuke with elaborate scrimshaw motifs on quality material. The netsuke is lightly stained in two tones, and has a naturally aged charming brown hue, with an incised seal mark in red sumi under the head of the carp. Itís noteworthy that the scroll held in his hand is paper-thin; but despite its age there is no defect found, and overall it remains in excellent condition. Like many unrecorded carvers, Yamaguchi is a little known netsukeshi, who likely worked during the late Meiji or Showa eras when large numbers of netsuke were produced for the European demands.
