Netsuke of two sumo wrestlers in a match, each attempting to throw the other. Superbly carved (see their incised fingernails), wonderfully captured body bulks and dynamic poses, perfectly etched textures of their hair and loincloths. Signed NANRYU in rectangular reserve on the bottom - for information about the artist see CONTEMPORARY NETSUKE by Miriam Kinsey, p. 224. Excellent netsuke. Height 1 7/8 inches.
