The shishi is the temple guardian dog in Buddhist countries. In this 19th Century Japanese netsuke, the simplicity of form of this guardian lion belongs to the Chinese Ming period. The piece was designed to be used as a seal, it has a natural himotoshi for the cord to pass through its front leg. The netsuke is lightly worn from usage over time, and the aged patina appears from cream to gold in a variant of colors. A similar lion seal netsuke is seen in Raymond Bushell's "Netsuke, Familiar & Unfamiliar" Chapter 36, page 201.
