BRONZE OKIMONO WITH THE EFFIGY OF AN OWL...

BRONZE OKIMONO WITH THE EFFIGY OF AN OWL / FUKURO
Japan, Taisho / Showa Period
The nocturnal bird is depicted perched on a tree stump/trunk. Its wings are folded over its back; its eyes are wide open. The patinas are played on, the stump is bitten and the animal's eyes are gilded; the textures are played on and rendered in a realistic manner: rough bark and downy wings, in particular. Hollows in the stump that can allow the introduction of objects, possibly brushes, although the primary aim of this group is decorative. Two-part group (stump and owl)
H: 25.5 cm - W: 24.5 cm - D: 14.5 cm
