Tikotin Japanese Museum, Haifa, Israel

Postby Operafan » Sat Aug 26, 2017 8:16 pm

I have had today a wonderful time at the Tikotin Japanese Museum in Haifa.
They had three exhibitions: kites, Hashira-e (pillar pictures) and... netsuke.

I will try to share some of the nicer netsuke (the ones I have reasonably good pictures of ;) ):

Thanks for the information and examples, Alex. It's always interesting to discover what different people enjoy.

Thanks, Alex! Were you taking photos through display case glass? Good job! I particularly like the dragon with coral tama manju .

Indeed I took photos with the phone, through display case glass, and the lighting was not something to write home about. Therefore most photos are of manju netsuke - easier to focus.

Dark, wooden katabori - no photo was good enough to post :( .

I was noticing that the manju look particularly good. That must be partly due to the conditions of photography you describe, but it does look there are some really fine ones there. Once again I'm captivated by Chokwaro's gourd-escaping horse!

Nice one Alex - thanks for sharing :x

I especially like the Oni head in Stag, although I'm not convinced it's as early as they say in the description.

I agree with your doubts about the Oni age, especially that I doubt it that 'natural hair' would last that long.

I liked the dragon with the tama. There were some other nice items (monkey signed Tomokazu, an unsigned wooden Kirin, a funny Hotei, sitting in his own bag, etc.), but the quality of the photos wasn't good enough to post.

In another room, there was an amazing exhibition of Hashira-e ('pillar pictures').

OK, I try the Hotei anyway:

Why wouldn't the antler crown Oni head be 19th century? There are plenty of purported 19th century pieces with original hair (which seems quite durable to me).
