The moon... Something dark and large appeared for a moment...
Scared, I look there!
There is nothing but a shadow of a branch...
S. O.

Very often we come across the situations that scare us. In time, it turns out that there is nothing to be afraid of.

So this ghost from far away looks scary, but if one takes a closer look, it turns out that there is nothing inside. Absolutely nothing. Emptiness. So, what are we afraid of?

This is a very dynamic netsuke!

The figurine is made of pear wood. I tried to remove everything from the inside, as much as possible. Khimatoshi is on the rear side. The signature is on the bottom.
