Happy Sennin on Rock Netsuke

Antique Japanese Carved Netsuke
Happy Sennin
On Rock with Flywhisk
Signature: unsigned, Circa: early 19th Century
H 2.2 in.(5.6cm), W 1.7 in.(4.3cm), D 1.2 in.(3.5cm)
Condition: usage worn, o.a. very good!

Said to be immortal and possessors of magical powers, the Chinese legend of sennin, a mythical variation of the Taoist, has lasted for thousands of years, predating even Buddhism. This good size ivory netsuke shows a gleeful sennin sitting on a rock formation in royal ease position. In his left hand he holds a fly whisk, an item of leadership often held by sages, and a signifier of the value of all life. Deeply carved lines create a vivid and sturdy sculpture. The piece is aged attractively from use, tactile and has aji (the agreeable feeling one gets when holding the piece). Unsigned, this piece predates the mid-19th century, a time when most netsuke carvers began to use signatures. Before this time it was considered arrogant to use one's name. This piece is in very good condition.
