A boldly-carved boxwood covered box formed as six mischievous oni. The devilish little imps, their fangs revealed and muscles flexed, test their strength as they struggle to haul away the precious treasure sack they had just stolen from Hotei. Clad in characteristic tiger-skin trousers, they pull and tug—to no avail. This charming and rare covered box is in excellent condition and would add pleasure and pride to any collection.
