 Mingei Otakapoppo Hawk Amulet

Meiji period, mid-late 19th century

A scarce early Japanese Mingei hawk sculpture of simple wood carving known as 'Sasano-Ittobori', so-called 'Otakapoppo' ("Hawk toy").
Belonging to the lucky-symbols ('Engi-mono') - that was actually sold from temple or shrine in Sasano in Yamagata province as its original provenance.
