Early 19th century netsuke of a mother pounding millet on stalks with a large pestle on a shaped tree stump, while her son is pulling at the tail of a rooster who seems to be very interested in the results of the millet pounding. Unusual subject, very nicely captured mood of the scene, good detailing - see the comb in her hair, black ink highlights, wonderful patina, dust accumulation on the surface. Height 1 3/4 inches.
