A stately wood-carved netsuke of a seated tiger, its powerful head turned. The creature’s coat is finely delineated, accented by the appearance of his long tail resting upon its back. A formidable beast, the tiger’s nature- its beauty and power - are perfectly captured by the netsuke-shi. This marvelous netsuke is in excellent condition, with no problems and no repairs. The incised signature of Hoichi, who specialized in the carving of wood netsuke, is on its tail. Height: 1.25” 19th Century, Japan
