Wild Boar Rooting Netsuke

Wild Boar Rooting Netsuke

The traditional Japanese kimono lacked pockets. Netsuke were devised as a means to hang pouches, thus enabling the wearer to carry a number of personal items. A practical invention that filled a very specific need. Over a period of 300 years, netsuke evolved into a unique form of miniature sculpture. Subjects varied widely, including: deities, legendary heroes, and animals.

These are museum quality reproductions of historic hand carved netsuke. The originals were made of ivory or wood. Ours are made from a polymer resin preferred by elephants and walruses everywhere. They range from about two to three inches in height.
