|This is a spectacular wood netsuke carved completely as a seated skeleton with a mokygyo drum between his bony legs. The artist went through great lengths to portray the hollowness and surface nuances of its bone structure, achieving remarkable realism. The skeleton as subject is often associated with life's transience and sought by collectors worldover. This netsuke is signed on the base UNSAI and is in very good condition for its age. 19th Century, Japan|
