Early 19th century netsuke of Zen Buddhism Patriarch Daruma sitting enveloped in his monastic robe with cape, and holding a fly whisk in his hands. Wonderful strong carving, fantastic intense face with horn inlaid eyes, beautifully flow to the lines of his robe. Excellent cloud designs on his robe, great patina. Signed MASAKAZU in leaf shaped reserve on the bottom - the artist is discussed on p. 707 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. The carver is the first one on the Meinertzhagen list reproduced on page 708. Height 1 5/8 inches.
