19th century netsuke of an actor in a role of a shojo wearing a characteristic red wig and holding a fan in his hand. Shojo are the mythical creatures living near the sea and they are particularly fond of sake. Made in saishiki technique - the wood is covered with gesso, which in turn is painted in bright colors, some of them in low relief layers. Very well carved and painted, obvious losses to paint, traces of colorless glue on the bottom. Height 2 inches
