Hotei Ivory Netsuke
Sold To Private Collection

Hotei with his plump round belly and benign joyful countenance is the Japanese god of good luck and fortune: Ask him a wish and he will grant your desire. In China he is known as Budai, the “Happy Buddha”. This 19th century netsuke depicts the god in a relaxed pose, belly exposed with a sacred fan (an uchiwa) in his hand. Hotei is often depicted surrounded by children and this ivory is no exception: there is a beaming child at his side. Both Hotei and the child wear beautifully detailed kimonos; dashes of fine filigree embellish the robes. Hotei’s belly is exceptionally plump and weathered. The detail continues to the bottom of the feet. This netsuke is signed Shunzan and is recorded in the "Netsuke by NK Davey as an early 19th century carver. A delightful rendition from the period.
