Koma-Inu (lit. Korean Dog) sculpted from a gray-hued volcanic stone. Early-Edo Period ca. 1650. Old loss, most notably to the right foreleg and the foot of the right hind leg. Light lichen accumulation.

Height: 28.5 cm
Width: 14 cm
Depth: 29.5 cm

A small-scale yet formidable example, well-sculpted and showing significant age. Uncommon.
