|A stained boxwood sashi netsuke of a grimacing oni, one of Japan’s often- portrayed folkloric figures, pounding mochi in its cauldron, his sharp claws firmly grasping the sides. The artist chiseled and molded the creature’s musculature with great attention to anatomical detail, achieving a heightened, naturalistic effect. Signature plaque of Keimin on base.( The piece shows slight wear - please see photographs), but does not distract from its superior quality and craftsmanship.) Height: 3” Meiji Period, Japan|
