A very nicely worked wood netsuke depicting a child seated with his feet pressed together and hands wrapped around them. The child’s face is very well carved, with his chubby lips smiling to show several tiny teeth minutely carved. A delicate bow covers his back, the underside showing a well detailed pattern. The himotoshi is formed by a ringed smaller hole and deeply carved oval exit.


Although unsigned, the style of the face – especially the distinctive lips and shape of the eyes – along with the himotoshi are very similar to the seated Darumas by Shumin.
