Very rare, hand-formed statue of a sitting monkey embracing with arms and legs a matsudake mushroom. The shape of the mushroom is very similar to an erect penis and the sculpture definitely has an erotic meaning.

Stoneware with natural ash glaze. Impressed maker’s mark, not legible.

Japan, Taisho/Showa, 1920s-30s.

H 3.5 in.

One tiny chip at the bottom, all in all excellent condition
