A charming stained boxwood netsuke of an agile crane dancer balancing on one foot, his graceful movements similar to those of a Japanese red-crowned crane. A beloved subject for netsuke carvers, this crane- dancer’s movements are enhanced by the fluidity of his robes and vivid bodily gestures. This netsuke is in excellent condition with beautiful patina, the incised signature of the master, Ryu-un Roku on the side of his leg. Height: 2” 19th century, Japan
