Bronze Okimono of Two Shishi
This is a cast -bronze okimono of two playful shishi-one with a glass tama precariously held on its tail. The mythological creatures are modeled in great detail, their muscular bodies, with tufts of curly fur, twist and turn as they wrestle.This sculpture with removeable head and inlaid shakudo eyes is in excellent condition, the removable cover modeled as the head of one of the shishi. Height: 6.25" Meiji Period, Japan
