Rare excellent Japanese Rabbit Figure Sculpture from wood. An excellent, rare Japanese wooden sculpture of mother rabbit with beautiful long ears and two baby rabbits. This figure is from cedar tree, it is an artist work, but it is not signed on the bottom. This figure is simple and unadorned, focusing attention on its natural material (wood) and very rich, dark patina over the years (paint/lacquer). The color of this wood carving is very beautiful: you can compare it with the youhen glaze in the Bizen pottery: a reddish dark-brown colour with yellow and ash white spots.This statue is a gem. The rabbit is one of the twelve animals of the Japanese zodiac and was carved as an ornament for display (okimono) to bring good luck. It could be a nice New Year gift for someone who is a Japanese rabbit lover or was born in the Year of the Rabbit. Please see all attached photos for details.
The wooden rabbit is guite old. (late Showa period), but it has no serious defects, no cracks, no chips. This wooden figure comes in a wooden box that I bought the rabbit in. It is a Japanese second-hand item and the original label was removed over time. Some wear to the wooden box.
Height: 13 cm; Width: 24 cm X 12.5 cm; Weight rabbit: 850 grams. Weight with box: 1300 grams.
