Oni Drumming Netsuke

A well preserved tea stained ivory netsuke with dense grains and varied tones, featuring a rare design of two little oni with bulging eyes and devilish charms, childlike faces that are barely larger than the head of matches. The oni are wrapped in tiger skin loincloths, grinning cheerfully working on a large drum (Taiko), as one oni kneeled down punching holes with his index finger, another oni is hurriedly setting black corals inlays for a finishing touch. Japanese legend is replete with stories that characterize oni as wickedly troublesome, and capable of a variety of misadventures. This tactile netsuke refuted the myth with a witty irony. Signed Naokazu in formal kanji characters that are keenly identical to the signature shown in the Netsuke Handbook by Ueda Reikichi.
