Japanese Netsukes

Netsukes have been popular for centuries - showcasing a great degree of artistic skills.
The sculptures developed from a practical purpose to one of high art over the years.
You will notice the holes for hanging them from the traditional Obi,
serving the functional purpose of keeping personal belongings attached to the sash,
and also as a fashion statement.
Modern reproductions can and are made using a plethora of carving tools and methods
- but the degree of craftsmanship is due to the artist
