A very tall netsuke measuring just under 15cm depicting Ashinaga-Tenaga (‘Long Legs, Long Arms’) in well-toned wood. The pair work together to overcome their physical difficulties and achieve their common goal. Ashinaga has long legs, while Tenaga, long arms. Tenaga will often be shown sitting on the back of Ashinaga with his long arms reaching down to catch a fish, in this case, an octopus that has wrapped itself around Ashinaga’s leg.
