19th century netsuke of a skeleton with a lotus stem with bud in his hand kneeling next to mokugyo (Buddhist temple gong). The subject is a ghost of a late Buddhist priest Danka. Wonderful carving with inquisitive expression on the face of the scull, great depiction of decaying wood of the gong. Excellent inking on the face, beautiful wear, warm patina. Height 1 3/8 inches.
