A cleverly carved MAMAOTH IVORY NETSUKE of Two Monkeys, sharing a fruit. The bigger monkey has the hole as in traditional netsuke, used as a button on the sash. This immaculately carved monkey pair netsuke is a delight, to treasure and keep! Carved from one piece of ivory, it still shows clear delineation of the cut and profile of both the monkeys. With black beaded eyes, clear facial features, expert workmanship can be noticed. Monkey is the ninth animal featuring in the 12 year cycle of animals of the Chinese Zodiac. The Chinese calendar features one animal out of the 12 zodiac animal. The next Monkey calendar year will be 2016.
