"Oh...Wow", she whispered under her breath, as though in a dream, as her fingers mentally wandered over the surface of those prized netsuke.  The images, although only two dimensional, told the story of carvings possessing such a finish, they were a joy to caress--if only in her imagination!

Jan, did the attendees "vote" on their favorite or best pieces?
That is quiet an interesting reptile on the clam shells. The himotoshi placement on the Kawazu throw piece looks like it would cause the standing wrestler to literally sit on the top of the obi.

Lets smile...!

The Martyn photos are really the Jesuschrist images in the Bible and sacred paintings...! I'm afraid that if Hollywood discover him a religious postulant we will lose a netsuke collector...Image
Excellence in netsuke art don't need signature or pedigree, or age, only quality, aesthetics, beauty.
