As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this very well carved and humorous boxwood and mixed media Okimono, the carving depicts an Oni crouching before a small Conch Shell , his right hand clutching the rim of the Shell, he has an understandable grimace on his face as he is burdened by a massive Conch Shell tied to his back with a rope , he wears a finely detailed gilded band around his head ,tied below his chin in a bow, his eyes are picked out in Horn and Ivory, crouched and fixed to his original rootwood base this would make a fantastic ornament or a great soap/pot pourri holder on  the bathroom shelf  , a fabulous item from the Meiji period, circa 1900 .

The condition of the carving is excellent , with only minor age related chips to the underside of the root wood base.
