Good condition, see description - 32×31×46 mm

Object: Netsuke (More lots)
Material: Boxwood
Period: Late 20th century
Region/ Country of origin: Japan
Title of artwork: Shunga Netsuke Naked Woman
Condition: Good condition, see description
Dimensions: 32×31×46 mm

Nicely hand-carved wood Netsuke depicting a seated naked woman. She is shown here with her right hand between her legs with great pleasure as demonstrated by the expression of her face.
The netsuke is definitely of shunga type with obvious sexual connotation, even if the hidden bottom part reveals a very different story…

The netsuke is wonderfully carved (see her endearingly lustful face and hair arrangement), and quite a witty little piece expressing the wonderful humor of the Japanese, with beautiful patina and hardly any nicks.

It is in excellent condition, as may be seen in the posted photos.
Signed on the bottom 'Gyokuseki' 玉石.
