A wood netsuke depicting a humorous moment between Hideyoshi and a child. Hideyoshi, a rag to riches character who went on to become one of Japan’s greatest warriors and military leaders.
He was also the Regent of Japan for a very short time. Riding on his back is the child of Oda Nobunaga.
Hideyoshi is on all fours with bottom on display, pretending to be a horse. The child sits on his back holding onto a pair of makeshift reins. Hideyoshi’s facial expression is hilarious. It looks like a great deal of fun is being had.
