I have a similar ox which could be by the same hand but horns of yours are different. Sold as circa 1800 but I think it is likely 100 years later than that. I've referred to mine as a tribute piece rather than school piece. They are beautifully carved though.

Thanks everyone for all of your feedback, Alan with regards to dating this piece it certainly has the wear and patina to the underside that makes it intuitively feel like a pre-1800 carving but this doesn't really show in the photographs.

Mine is in storage unfortunately at the moment. I simply can't be certain about the dating of mine but prefer to err on the side of newer. If/when accurate dating techniques evolve we may both be surprised.

PJB, that is a well-carved example of this popular subject - one we would all be proud to have added to our collections during 2016!

Enjoy it!

In the thread with the TOPIC PIPECASES
I posted a Taishin pipecase with the design of Oku No Hosomichi. I do not want to mix up pipecases with inro. Searching an inro thread I found this one to continue with another example of the discussed motif in another art form.

On this inro we have of course the oizuru, the vine leaves and on the reverse the walking stick and the large hat of the unseen priest or wanderer/traveler. This inro had been my first contact leading to Basho's poems in Oku No Hosomichi,
