Hello, this is my first Contemporary Netsuke. It depicts Mr, Bushell as the Buddha with long draping ears. In addition, it shows his favorite netsuke, the Kaigyokusai crane floating in the distance. This netsuke won "Best use of materials" at a Netsuke Kenkyukai Society convention. Please correct my if I am wrong, but I believe this to be the only netsuke to depict a collector. I love the gold inlayed crane in the background.
Chicago 1993? Yeah I was there. Yes.. the carving competition was I believe one of Kinsey's ideas but was very contentious and hardly any carvers were willing to participate. In fact I think there was a bit of row about it.. it certainly was never held at future conventions. I don't remember seeing this carving or have any idea who Al Walters is... sorry.
