This pair of figures in carved, incised and stained Oriental ivory was probably made before 1920. The ivory carving exhibits some Japanese motifs, such as the rising sun designs on the saddle cloth and the three clawed dragon prominently shown on the Emperor's jacket.[42A, 168B] The Chinese styles, however, seem more obvious to us. They include: the figures' physiognomy, particularly facial and body posture; head dress; and sectional appliques.[25C] There is a back-to-back 'pakwa ...click for details
