Condition: excellent!

An expressive monkey beats a large drum in this antique netsuke in cream colored ivory with age patina, engraving with sumi. The monkey, although it is one of the twelve zodiacal animals, is generally not esteemed as a noble creature, but rather one that must be indulged, with all its trickery and mischief, lest it fail to thwart the demons it influences, and cause bad luck. The monkey is dressed in a short kimono and is beating a hirado taiko, a booming drum, to announce his importance. The work is nicely variegated in color, with white highlights glossy from handling.
