Edo Shishi Ashinaga Tenaga Netsuke MINKOKU
* click on image for fullsize view
Item description: * Offered for sale is an exceptional and extremely rare and important late 18th century early 19th century shishi type Japanese ivory netsuke of Ashinaga and Tenaga. The netsuke is signed below the himitoshi by one of the very famous Japanese carvers Genryosai Minkoku I and Minkoku signed pieces are among the most sought after by netsuke collectors. The piece is 83mm tall and 28mm wide. The present netsuke was acquired through a well known European noble family, who used to live between 1890 and 1920 in Japan and China. The netsuke has a perfect patination and is in an absolutely perfect condition without any faults whatsoever. Lifetime guaranteed authentic and in perfect condition. Minkoku signed pieces are scarce and early ones made of bone and not boxwood are usually on the top of collector's lists... We haven't seen a good Edo period Minkoku piece sell for less than $3,000 and all price references are from about 6-10 years ago. Current prices should be considered to be much higher, but we haven't noticed any such piece offered lately. A nearly identical piece (most probably from the very same estate) has appeared nearly 10 years ago in 2004 at the Zacke Gallery in Vienna under Code AS20-299 (we are attaching a photo of it for your reference photo courtesy of the Zacke Gallery). Please, note that the present netsuke is a true and scarce Japanese antiques and work of art collector piece and is by far more important than any later or modern pieces. Ashinaga-tenaga (Long Legs Long Arms) are a pair of y?kai in Japanese folklore. One, Ashinaga-jin, has extremely long legs, while the other, Tenaga-jin, has extremely long arms. They were first described in the Japanese encyclopedia Wakan Sansai Zue. The pair is commonly described as people from two countries, the "Long-legged Country", and the "Long-armed Country". As the names suggest, the inhabitants of these two countries possess unusually lengthy arms and legs. The two work together as a team to catch fish by the seashore. In order to do this, the long-armed man, tenaga, climbs onto the back of the long-legged man, ashinaga. The ashinaga then wades out into the shorewaters, staying above water with his long legs, while the tenaga uses his long arms to grab fish from his partner's back. According to the Wakan Sansai Zue, the tenaga is also known as chohi, and his arms can reach three jo in length, or a bit over nine meters. The ashinaga's legs stretch to two jo, or just slightly over six meters.
