Ten Cranes Netsuke

Antique netsuke carved from the very tip of the tusk, with concentric striations and crosshatching, in a light cream color with age patina and a glossy surface. Carving of multiple animal netsuke presents a challenge to the netsukeshi, requiring ingenuity in design and knowledge of animal anatomy. Such pieces display an intriguing use of compositional devices to place many creatures into a small hand-held object, here attaining ten fully depicted cranes. Since the crane is said to live a thousand years, this carving with its ten cranes is a talisman for a long life of at least ten thousand years. In recent years children, almost entirely unaided, began a movement and established a globally recognized symbol of the hope for world peace in the folded paper crane.
