Contemporary netsuke, fish, miniature sculpture

Netsuke- Contemporary

Contemporary netsuke, miniature sculptures from craftsman who produce  extraordinary detail with exemplary skill. A continuation of the 17th century Japanese tradition of imbuing a functional pouch toggle with artistic expression to create a collectible item.

Netsuke require an aperture through which to pass silk cord. They have retained their significance through the centuries as a form of fine art.
