Pair of Japanese Netsuke Figures
This highly unique pair of Japanese wood carvings shows two nude Geisha girl figures crouched down - one curled inwards embracing herself and the other folded outwards, displaying a fan on her back. The beautifully smooth form and finish adds to the grace of these delicate, curious little trinkets, with the varying tones in wood between the two sculptures adding a wonderfully decorative touch.
Netsuke figures are highly collectable miniature sculptures that originated in 17th century Japan as tiny carvings used as button fasteners. These wonderful trinkets have since evolved to take on countless different forms, differing in style, material and subject.
