Beyond Containment: Year Of The Dragon ~ Netsuke

Janel Jacobson

2012    Size   H: 1.5 in  W: 2 in  D: 1.5 in  

In a private collection

This is my offering for the AAW-POP Invitational: Beyond Containment. At the moment of hatching, the dragon is beyond containment and begins to emerge from its egg. Peering out of an opening it tastes the world for the first time. This netsuke, turned and carved from boxwood that grew in southeastern Pennsylvania, has additions of mammoth tusk for the tongue, and horn with gold leaf backing for the eye. The above measurements are for the netsuke, not including base.
