A wonderful little netsuke of the famous Chinese poet Ri Haku, Ri-tai-haku (Chinese: Li Bai), carved in a well known reference possibly from a Chinese painting. The netsuke is unsigned, its size and motif indicating its mid 19th century origins. The poet leans on an emptied wine jug; etched clouds blow across his robe. Balancing his full cup on his knee he smiles, drunkenly. Legend has it that his he died in pursuit of the moon and its reflection on the ocean, falling in and drowning while trying to lift it from the water. A tactile and warm netsuke in excellent condition.
