A fine boxwood okimono of a farmer garbed in traditional peasant clothing, his shin-guards made of bamboo, a newly-gathered bunch of radishes over his shoulder. Plow in hand, and returning home from an arduous day at work, the animated carving of this splendid sculpture indicate his pleasure in the simple things in life. Artist Nigaku signature plaque on the foot. This lovely okimono is in excellent condition. Height: 6.5” Meiji Period, Japan
