A tall stained boxwood netsuke sculpted as an amusing man, his face contorted and similar to the legendary Japanese folkloric character of Hyottoko. The comical man wears long robes tightly wrapped around his waist, a bamboo staff in one hand. This charming netsuke is in very good condition with excellent patina. Length: 3” 19th Century, Japan
