Sculpted from iron-rich clay, this Bizenware piece is formed as a standing Shojo. The long-haired, mythical creature, clearly inebriated, holds with great devotion a bottle containing his favorite drink—sake. The sculpture is highly detailed with fine lines denoting the characteristic long hair, soft clothing and facial features. This amusing pottery sculpture is in excellent condition. Height: 10.5” 19th century, Japan
