This is the second netsuke on the theme suggested to me by Her Imperial Highness Princess Hisako Takamado. To see the first netsuke, click here.

This time I carved a wolf on guard standing over her playing cub. I chose Mountain mahogany wood from Las-Vegas as material for the netsuke. The wolf´s eyes are inlayed with mother-of-pearl and jet stone. The figurine is darkened with sumi ink.
