A boxwood netsuke of a lotus leaf with naturalistically-detailed veining and worm holes. For contrast, the sculptor created a representation of a kappa/water sprite in ceramics, a source of dramatic interest as the little creature peeps out from the folds of the wood lotus. Carved seal of “Kan” (Ritsuo) on nether side. Overall excellent condition. Length: 1.5” 19th Century, Japan
