Re: Proverb and Allusion

Interesting, Neil ... whale bone works must be quite rare ...

Re: Proverb and Allusion

Rusumoyo and mitate and their link to allusion as explained by Piers would certainly lift the discussion. Bill Yes, thank you, Piers, for the fine explanation and example of your avatar piece ;-) Bill, the Forum had some fascinating threads already on the subjects of Ruso Moyo and Mitate . It may b...

Re: Man in a shell

Hi Tigerlilly, Nice to see your positive attitude and that you want to learn more about this fascinating field. I'm afraid the items you posted here are also in the NLO category. At first sight, from the pictures, the first piece - the Chinese figure within a lotus plant (?) - looks like resin and n...

Re: Netsuke Musicians

Hi Tom,

sorry that we have not been able to give you good news about these items ...

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you might have about netsuke !
Best

Re: Inherited Netsuke no. 7

Hi Phillip, Nice one ! This looks like an authentic, quite powerful and compact netsuke of an "Oni", protecting himself from the beans thrown at him at "Setsubun". The signature seems to read "Masanao". There are quite a few carvers signing with that name. One of them, ...
