An unusual wood and lacquer netsuke depicting the infamous Noh character Hannya. Raging eyes appear ghostly against the lacquer, "rubbed white" in the Tessai technique. Red lips outline the fangs of this tormented woman. This netsuke is in very good condition having only minor loss to the lacquer on the chin, commensurate with age and use. 19th Century, Japan
