Toba (Soshi) was a 11th century Chinese statesman, calligrapher and poet of the Song Dynasty. Accused of intrigue by the emperor he went into exile. Hence he exemplifies the free spirit of a wise man. As portrayed in this Showa Period ivory okimono, Toba is wandering on a horse. A highly stylized outstanding prototype. The details over the face of Toba is remarkably expressive. The acute gesture of this finely detailed figure that hold the rope to the horse high-lighted the melancholy disposition of the wise man. The dense and smooth natural material has a beautiful cream patina and an even shine and is in perfect condition.
