19th century Japanese netsuke carved as a peasant on a Buddhist temple pilgrimage with a scarf wrapped around his head, a Buddhist gong hanging off his neck, and a striker in one hand. Wonderful face with widely open mouth, very good detailing, traces of worn black, red and golden lacquer giving the piece a great feel of age, beautiful patina. Height 2 3/16 inches.
