Early 19th century

Stag antler netsuke

Lenght: 6.6 cm

 

The shoot is carved with naturalistic detail, the broken end showing clearly beneath. Represented slightly curved, following the natural shape of the stag, this study shows a very good use of the material, with the new shoot inserted into the main body in order to mark the darker part of the material in contrast the the newborn plant.
