Netsuke rarely depicts the Shakyamuni due to respect for the great Buddha. However, this skin and bone figure depicts Prince Siddhartha at a time he was practicing asceticism in the land of Magadha; after six years, he remained unable to attain his goal. Then one day, he went bathing in the river and accepted a rice ball from the hand of Sujata, a maiden who belonged to the untouchable caste, and came to the realization that severe asceticism can only wear out the body, thus depriving the strength he needed to attain the path to enlightenment.

The netsuke of Shakyamuni is finely realized, and possibly inspired from an original okimono prototype established by the Chinese in the Ming dynasty. The netsuke is carved from a single piece of quality ivory. It has a cool white patina, and two typical small hair lines running along the back side. Artist signature is signed on the base.
