PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Hand-carved boxwood netsuke depicting a prowling tiger with intricate striped markings. Netsukes are small carved ornaments traditionally used as closures for Japanese garments like kimonos in the 17th century. Over time these miniature sculptures have evolved into collectables that can be displayed on your shelves or stands. Tigers symbolise strength and courage, and in Japanese culture they are said to offer protection against evil spirits and bad luck. Our Tiger Nutsuke is a popular choice as tigers are the Eastern zodiac animal for 2022.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.

I am not convinced this is hand carved from box wood. Appears like resin to me.
Thank you for getting in touch. We can confirm the Tiger 2022 Netsuke is carved from boxwood. Our Supplier have been working with this carving workshop since 2003, established under the leadership of a respected ‘master craftsman’, they carve using a mix of hand and power tools and with a variety of woods, but predominantly box wood. Our Supplier is proud to work alongside such a traditional factory and each netsuke is classed as a miniature work of art, with their own small differences and expressions. A member of our customer service team has been in touch with more information. Kind regards, Millie.

Bought as a gift for a relative who collects Netsuke. Lovely carving which I am convinced my relative will enjoy.
