Product Description

A very fine quality c1900 Japanese carved ivory small statue of a patently Western looking pair of Classical Greek Mythological characters having sex.

Both are naked, with the long eared woman (some sort of fairy spirit laying upside down and the man parting her legs whilst holding a phallus dildo. She has a water pot behind her back. Despite both characters being White, they show distinctive Japanese style. The carving is very detailed, with expressive faces. Generally, the hair, eyes and clothing are highlighted in black ink, but in this case only the eyes are delineated in black. The lack of colour of the hair gives the impression of blonde hair. The underside of the man’s foot is signed by the artist.

Condition is very good, without any damage. The ivory has a cream colour despite the age. The piece is part of a large lifetime collection we bought a few years ago. (042)

Size: 3.8 x 3.5 x 5.2 cm (1 ½ x 1 3/8 x 2 1/16 inches)
