In the old Japan, to give a goat netsuke as a gift was considered a gesture wishing the recipient a good life. Goat is also the eighth animal in the Asian zodiac. People born in the year of the goat are believed to be wise, generous, passionate, elegant and artistic by nature.

This recumbent goat with head turned back to the left, his eyes inlaided in dark horn, swirl of incised stained hair work in contrast with the face and horns, a himotoshi to his side, and a smaller one in the base. On the rear right thigh is the signature Hiroyuki, which is incised and stained on an oval reserve. A well carved netsuke from a quality piece of ivory. It is modeled in deep dimensions with sharply observed details. The well polished planes of soft round edges are perfectly tactile for its purpose.
