19th century wooden shunga netsuke representing seated Okame wearing richly patterned robe and smiling widely as she touches herself as shown on the bottom of the netsuke. The netsuke is skillfully carved out of hinoki (cypress wood) typical for the Hida school. Made in saishiki technique - the wood is covered with gesso, which in turn is painted in bright colors. Perfectly captured facial expressions, beautifully painted, wonderful wear to paint, great feel of age to the piece. Signed CHIKUJU on the back - this artist from Hida school is listed in NETSUKE by Neil Davey (p. 452, number 134). Height 1 7/16 inches.
