Mice Netsuke by Naokazu

Rats are known as nazumi in Japanese. Due to its association with the Lucky God Daikoku, (and the Hindu God of Wealth Ganesh), rat is a venerated symbol of prosperity in Japanese culture, and rat netsuke were wore as good luck charms; hence this six rats netsuke was evidently cherished by many of its former owners for the abundance it represented.

Koryusai Naokazu is an important netsukeshi in the Edo Temple period (1830-1834). Well known for his figures and animal in wood and ivory, as clearly displayed in this superb boxwood netsuke, in which the design concept and the skill shown in pruden simplicity, with exact details and ebullient expressiveness in the six rats, that firmly established his status as a master carver. The netsuke is beautifully aged with minor usage worn, well preserved wood in natural light brown, and observed no defect other than a couple of small nicks on a mouse, overall it is in very good condition.
