A large and finely worked, root sculpture depicting a pair of birds (male and female pheasants?) on a tree trunk. The sculpture is partly natural and partly worked with a deep honey-colored hue and very nice details. Both birds are attached to the tree trunk by small pegs emulating their legs (one original peg replaced). Meiji, 19th cent. H 61.5 cm. Condition: Very good (one or two twigs may be broken on the male bird).
