Carved in the Meiji Restoration period, this exquisite okimono netsuke of natural himotoshi reflects the westernization that took place at the time, when the demand for netsuke was on the demise, and many netsuke carvers turned to carving okimono. The subject matters echos an emphasis on peace and prosperity in peasant life. It portrays a mother is taking a step forward, but gently turning back by a delightful little pup, while emerging from her back is a small child tucked inside the kimono, with a toy in hand he playfully leaning forward to her right, as she reaches back to support his weight with her hand. The facial expressions of the mother and child are radiating with loving tenderness. The compositions of these figures are complex, with intricately carved through angles and rounded contours, meticulously scrimshawed motifs in contrast to ample of white and gold tone in the natural material.
