A contemporary netsuke by Adam Bland depicting reishi fungi carved from mountain mahogany. The piece is carved and stained in a very traditional form, with several natural openings that would make suitable himotoshi. Below you can read Adam’s inspiration for this piece.

“During my visit to the shosei-en garden in Kyoto one September I was inspired by the reishi fungi. The leathery fungi were well at home in the historic setting of the beautiful garden.  A small bastion of peace and tranquillity nestled in the heart of the ancient capital. It’s been a work of many years, which is rather apt for the subject matter, symbolising longevity. Originally, I started this piece in 2016 but it never quite felt complete until now. Carved from mountain mahogany with a dark stain.”
