Size: Height 19" Diameter 10"

The statue is based on existing works of similar statues made by the Kei school. Examples range from noted museums to established religious institutions that house various examples done by Unkei and Kaikei. This work might have been appropriating and giving an homage to the tradition and art.

Elegant Jadeite “Bi” shaped pendant with excellent apple green highlights in the stone.

This piece is over 50 years old so this is the original color which will not change over the passage of time. Free shipping via Hong Kong registered airmail include in purchase price...

We have long been an admirer of the work of Tatsuzō Shimaoka (島岡 達三) 27 October 1919 – 11 December 2007). We have had several examples of works by Shimaoka - three of which are currently on our site.

Shoda Koho
Moonlit Sea
Date: 1910~1920
Size: 9.5 x 7.0 inches.
Publisher: T. Hasegawa, from the famous "Night Scenes" series. Hasegawa catalogue No. 1250.
On original cardstock with black paper applied to verso.
Condition: Excellent. Very faint scuff line.
This example is curious, since it bears a seal reading "Arai". This is likely a collector's seal, though Yoshimune Arai was another Hasegawa artist.
