Description

Skillfully craved, mammoth ivory netsuke of poet writing and drinking tea. A simple concept that captures a myriad of expressions and holds significance about the life of a poet. Look at the endearing smile, the happiness that seems to radiate from his facial expressions. Notice the way the poet holds the teapot and how he holds the cup. See that his hair is tied up with a small piece of cloth or hat while the plaited hair hangs down his back. The traditional dress and hairstyle accentuates the complete depiction of the netsuke of poet writing and drinking tea.

Though the poet is about to drink tea, the scroll of poetry is right in front of him.  Look at the tiny yet nearly legible handwriting that the Master Carver has hand painted with the thinnest paintbrush. Notice the one piece of mammoth ivory that has been used to carve this ivory netsuke of poet. Don’t miss the small teapot with an even tinier spout but each aspect of the netsuke of poet writing and drinking tea, is carved to perfection.
