A dramatic stained wood netsuke sculpted as the mask of Ko-Beshimi, the demon with compressed lips. The furrowed eyebrows and flared nostrils denote his contained rage. Incised signature of legendary Noh mask maker and netsuke-shi, Deme, on reverse. This striking netsuke is in excellent condition. Height: 1.75” 19th Century, Japan
