Subject:Okimono identification
Posted By: Ian Prior Tue, Sep 24, 2019 IP: 2a00:23c6:2207:8c00:

A non-IT friend has recently purchased a piece of okimono - just because it caught his eye. I know nothing about this subject and would welcome the views of this forum.

It is carved from stone, and depicts a cat with a bird in its stomach. We had considered that it might be soapstone, but it seems too hard. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
