A dramatically-carved wood netsuke of a boldly-detailed macaque struggling under the predatory claws of a powerful hawk. The tension between the two creatures is vividly portrayed by the clear definition of the two creatures’ bodies, expressions and positions. The himotoshi are placed strategically on the hawk’s back. Beautifully carved, this fine netsuke is in very good condition. Height: 1.75” Late 19th Century, Japan
