A boxwood netsuke of a sennin with an octopus. Late 18th/early 19th century
The long-haired and bearded sennin stands tall and upright with a basket hanging from his belt, hand raised in a gesture of surprise and clutching an octopus by its head, which winds its long tentacles around the sennin’s body. Restored.
