19th Century, Masterfully Hand-Carved Boxwood Mask Netsuke depicting the Noh Theater character Shikami. Shikami is one the Noh Theater Demons. It expresses masculine rage, with its fierce scowling face that shows extreme agitation. The excellent detail crafted on this carving allows the characteristics of the Noh character to be clearly displayed. Netsuke measures 1.5 inches wide, 1.5 inches deep, and 2 inches tall. Netsuke has stag horn inlaid eyes. Netsuke is in very good condition, and it displays a beautiful patina, as you may be able to see in the posted photos. Netsuke is unsigned.
