tomokazu shishi netsuke

 

Antique Japanese Netsuke
Female Shishi
Tortoise Shell Umimatsu Inlaid

Netsuke Signature: Tomoichi, Circa: early 20th century
H 2 in.(5cm.), W 2.5 in.(6.3cm.), D 1 in.(2.5cm.)

Condition: Excellent!

A masterful conception and carving of a stylized Chinese lion, highly expressive and impeccably finished, with double-inlaid eyes of amber-colored tortoise shell and umimatsu for the dark pupils. This shishi is large and ebullient; with a clearly carved sex organ verifying her gender. Like her male counterpart, she is lively, crouching forward with a ball under her hind legs, her powerful head turned and looking up with a snarl, abundant balls of fur piled into swirling masses; her bushy tail raised up and thrown across her back is finely engraved with parallel hairlines. The thick paws are carved with defined claws that seem to dig into the surface on which she stands. There is also a yellow pearl inlay on the back of the shishi.
