Re: Merfolk & Shuryo

PS Neil - was the Hidemitsu example you shared in your post signed? I have only been able to find one so far. Do you know of any other examples by this Wakayama artist? Yes that one was signed, I did mean to have a bid on the piece but something must have distracted me. I have also seen a Shishi si...

I hear why you say Wizard Gomo. I am sorry but I don't have an image of the reverse, the rope is attached to a Gourd, so I say Tekkai though it could well indicate Chokaro.

Re: Merfolk & Shuryo

Beautiful Mermaid Klaus, thanks for sharing. These Mermaids are so close (in style) but I think their might be differences in age. However, even judging the age indicators is very subjective and I find myself contradicting myself regularly. This also highlights how the study aspect of our beautiful ...

Re: Merfolk & Shuryo

Your photo of the Shuryo mermaid is terrific--she looks very like the Natsuki in my fig. 17, and her wrists and hands gripping the tama look very like those ofTara/Roko Sennin holding onto his tortoise. Great detective work Alison. Dissecting Netsuke like this are exactly how to develop good attrib...

Well done, I was so enthralled that my tea went cold and I had to make another. :) One of the pieces...
