Japanese hardwood hand carved statue of a "TANUKI," or BADGER, with his left paw raised above his very expressive face and ears! This sculpture (which is very Shibui) has a wonderful solid, artsy, substantial "feel." Height is 9 inches or 23 cms. x 8.25 inches or 21 cms at the base. Condition, there are some knicks on the left sleeve and some indentations on the back which is "unfinished." Circa 1870-1900.
