A finely carved netsuke made in the shape of a turtle carrying a sort of aquatic world on its shell. In Chinese mythology, in which Japan’s has roots, the turtle is a representation of the universe and the world which it carries.

One of the foot of the turtle is shorter than the others, which makes the netsuke lean, when put on a flat surface. Looking closely, it is not clear whether that is caused by a flaw or not. In any case, netsuke were not supposed to be presented in such ways, ...
