John, you need to replace these images with larger sizes...  these are just way too small for comment.

Hello John,
It looks to be a modern netsuke and signed by the artist "Ko Baas" from the Netherlands, Holland.

I also like Shugenja would like bigger pictures.

It is a modern netsuke, but a very nice one indeed. Bakuoo7, thank you for identifying the carver!

While I do not own any of his work, I like his netsuke very much.
Goggle: "Ko Baas" and you will get his website.
He combines older themes with a newer, modern look, while preserving the old themes - I particularly like the tall Dutchman on his website.
Many others there too.

-copy to or move to Contemporary Threads, Vlad?

Thanks for the comments.
I made the pictures a bit larger. I hope this is better.
It is indeed an netsuke by Ko Baas. I also like the older themes and the details of his netsuke are outstanding.
I am a great admirer of his work.

That's right Vlad!
I also own the Temple pecker and Tengu that you can see on his site. It's starting to be quite a collection.

John, do you have photos of those two that you could share with us?
