Antique Japanese Netsuke
Fox Priest
Praying with Mala Beads
Netsuke Signature: Yuji, Early 19th Century
H 2in.(5cm), W .75in.(2cm), D .75in.(2cm)
Condition: excellent!

Hands joined in namaskara mudra with prayer beads hanging on wrists, the representation of an fox priest illustrates the horror and transformative power of demon fox in Chinese folklore, and the Japanese Kyogen play entitled "Konkai", The Cry of The Fox. Through my tireless research on this ultra fine artist, the name Yuji is found listed in "The Signature Book of Netsuke, Inro and Ojime Artists In Photographs" by George Lazarnick. Other record of Yuji is on "Contemporary Netsuke" by Mariam Kinsey. On page 222, Yuji is also known to signed his name Kogyoku and Masatoshi. With few of his carvings are found in the American and European collections.
