Fox Priest

Condition: hairlines!

A fox dressed in a monk robe standing feet apart, with slightly hunched shoulders and hidden claws holding prayer beads and katana sword. He has transformed into a Buddhist priest with dignified expression. Nevertheless, The fox face remains hairy yet expressive. His narrowed slanted eyes and twisted mouth look hauntingly vicious... which ultimately demonstrates the skill of the netsuke carver, and his artistry in capturing the extreme subtlety of the character. Likely created in the late Meiji or Taisho eras, this close grained, well marked netsuke with striations and cross hatching, signed on the base is the name Eishi, a spirited Japanese carver of rare output.
