Wooden netsuke of two coiled rats
by Sadakazu, Nagoya school
Wooden netsuke, eyes inlaid in dark horn
Signed: Sadakazuto / Teichito
Height: 4,7 cm
This netsuke represents two rats clinging to each other to form an almost spherical composition.
The two rodents are finely made: the hair is represented in a very realistic way and the vivid eyes inlaid in horn and transparencies, give almost the feeling that animals are animated.
Sadakazu is a late carver of Nagoya school
