Reflecting centuries of Japanese culture and artistry, this Elephant Netsuke has been exclusively made for Museum Selection's collection of pieces inspired by Oriental art. Intricately carved by hand from boxwood, this Elephant Netsuke is a unique piece of sculpture in miniature symbolising the elephant as an emblem of wisdom and strength. Originating in Japan as a form of traditional toggle closures for garments, netsuke evolved into a unique form of miniature sculpture from the 17th century onwards. Pieces were prized for their artistry and level of detail, typically carved from wood and ivory.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
