A heart-warming silver sculpture of a standing Ainu hunter with traditional clothes and hair treatment feeding a carrot to his “prey”, the hare cradled in his arms. This noble and unusual subject is rendered all the more vividly by the sculptor’s naturalistic modeling and positioning of the two figures. The hunter stands secured to an original black-lacquered stand. Sekiro and Haremasa incised signatures stamped seals on foot. This impressive silver sculpture is in excellent condition with no problems. Height: 12.25” Meiji Period, Japan
