Condition: cracklines and lost, overall good!

In this beautifully carved netsuke, two Japanese Macaque monkeys are seen fighting for a couple of peaches. The composition is strikingly animated, with flowing fur and splendid facial expressions, one monkey is looming over another with a tight grip on its neck, while the acquiescent underdog is holding the peaches screaming with an opened mouth, with one hand he is fighting back by pulling the ear of his attacker. The peach stem appears chipped long ago, and there is a minor loss on the thigh, an age crack clearly visible on the base. True to Japanese esthetic, the work is admirably carved and breathtakingly powerful. The netsuke is tactile, with a milk white to light cream surface; an exceptional work of art.
