A lovely unusual little sculpture with wonderful tactile presence, this was modeled using the electrotype process, then patinated and gilded. As far as we can ascertain, this is probably a representation of Daikuko.
2 1/2" h x 3 1/8" l x 1 1/8" d.
There is rubbing to the patina layer on places where the pieces is likely to have been handled. Gilding traces remain, but mostly this has rubbed away. Please see photos and email any questions or concerns you may have.
