A humorous wood netsuke depicting Hotei peering out of his sack, holding a tama in one hand. His face is wonderfully rendered and full of personality, the inside of his mouth stained with red pigment. The himotoshi is formed by one large oval and one smaller circular hole ringed with green-stained bone/ivory.
For a similar model by Shumin, see page 774 in MCI.
