Re: Our dear friend LUBlub

I didn't know Luigi in person, but I feel as if I did. A great guy, and what an eye he had! His absence will be deeply felt here. For all of you who did know him, I am so sorry.

Yukari Yoshida's fascinating 2012 article on teijin (merman) netsuke also deserves a shoutout.

Re: Merfolk & Shuryo

Many thanks, netsuke brothers, for all the kind words. I'm not sure I can ever manage another article of this kind. Iit was a topic I'd been pursuing for a while in western art before discovering netsuke. And without Alain Briot's terrific publications (kindly called to my attention by Max) that pro...

Re: Merfolk & Shuryo

Thanks for the good words, Neil, and apologies for the cold tea. But thanks especially for posting these marvelous images--it's great to know about this crew of artists. 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...

I think John is spot on about the subject--horses from gourds, a big surprise!

Re: Ceramic netsuke

Thanks, Judy and Piers. I wish you some time in Toledo. Sorry about the sideways photos--they are all right side up in my image bank, and I'm never sure why some will turn up with the wrong orientation in a post. I'll add one more relevant example from Toledo; this one, though similar to the previou...

Re: Ceramic netsuke
