#300 Bird Reflection, Swimming Fish, 1997

This two part, manju netsuke uses the character within the grain of the wood to suggest
the imagery. In the flowing grain of the Macassar Ebony netsuke, the darker grain
was subtly carved to enhance the subjects of the piece: the reflection of a bird,
perhaps a heron, and a fish, the ripple and flow of the lighter wood
became slowly moving water.
