Netsuke con arciere tartaro

Ivory netsuke of a mongolian archer

18th century

Height: 7.9 cm

 A tall ivory netsuke from the 18th century representing a bearded Mongolian bowman holding a bow and an arrow in his hands, with a large hat on his back. This archer wears a lozenge coat and a long-sleeved dress.

This subject is often seen in 18th century netsuke. It represents a dattanjin, a stranger inhabitant of Dattan and Orankai, the Chinese area where Mongolian and Tartars used to live. Though it was a so common subject, the similitude with the real looks of dattanjin might be questionable.
