A bronze statue of a fisherman about to cast his fishing net into the water. The statue is well crafted showing the veins on the legs, the knitting on the nets, every piece of straw on the dress. This meticulous detail work in Japanese bronzes is often seen during the Meiji Period. The bottom of the statue contain two inspection labels. One is a stamp with the inspector's name, Yamashita and a number, 28. The other is an official stamp with the seal of the inspector's name set in the middle. The stamp states the name of the guild and company, Juyo Bussan, and The Guild of Takaoka Bronze Objects. Age: Meiji Period. Size: Height: 8.25" Length: 10.25" Width: 9.5"
