An exquisite eye for beautifully painted detail distinguishes this netsuke size okimono of the popular god Daikoku.

When Daikoku shakes his mallet material abundance rains and reigns.

Polychrome Daikoku Netsuke

This okimono is carved from a lustrous natural material that is smooth to the touch. Daikokuís face is wide and open and upon close inspection exhibits exceptional detail: The painted eyes are smiling and expressive, the minute teeth are perfectly formed, each one distinctly carved. His ears are elongated and plump as befits such a deity. His hands are rounded but carved with a realistic sensitivity. It is a true feast for the eyes to examine the painted scrimshaw of this okimono. The artist has finely carved perfectly rendered textile details composed of minute hairlines that have then been precisely painted in metallic gold, silver, cinnabar red, forest green and dove gray. Expressive golden wood grain lines mark Daikokuís mallet. His multi-layered kimono exhibits multiple traditional textile motifs. (SD)
