A unique wood mask netsuke sculpted as a grimacing oni on one side, the other with an image of a jovial and plump Okame. The contrast of textures and carving techniques mimics the opposing roles of these two subjects enjoy in Japanese folklore. This netsuke is in very good condition. Length: 1.75” 19th Century, Japan
