A118. Copper Menuki of Wasps
A118. Copper menuki of wasps. 3.1 and 3.8 cm lengths. This is a very fun set; the subject is whimsical and the work is impressive. I’m always taken by how much incredibly skilled labor you can purchase for not a lot of money when you buy Nihonto art; this pair of menuki is a prime example. And they improve under magnification; more and more detail is here to be discovered. Condition is perfect; with a box. $325.
