The netsuke is carved of coffee tree´s wood brought by my friend from El Salvador.
This netsuke makes a pair with Spring Song netsuke, as I wanted to carve a lady to the monster-man singing its spring song of love. I´ve tried to make the monster-lady emotional and expressive.
The eyes are inlaid with mammoth tusk, the pupils are of jet.
This is a pair for the Spring Song netsuke.
