A boxwood trick netsuke depicting a boy carrying a very large and grumpy daruma doll. The boy’s head wobbles and moves from side to side. His facial expression strained, he appears to be struggling under the weight of the massive doll. The daruma’s eyes are double-inlaid with yellow and black horn, and the boy’s inlaid with dark dots. The himotoshi is formed by a natural opening between the boy’s arm and body.
