NAME: Japanese ittobori carving of the Zodiac animals, 2 w/wood box.

MAKER: Several makers, burnt wood engraved

SIZE: Vary. The tallest (monkey) is 2-3/8" (6cm) and the longest, dragon, is 3-1/2" (9.3cm)

CONDITION: There may be a few light dents or scratches but they are generally in good condition.

NOTES: Briefly, Ittobori is a carving technique. The name literally means "one chisel cut". You see the angles made by the chisel, they are not smoothed out. An art form that goes back hundreds of years, the most popular subjects are Noh and the 12 Animals of the Zodiac as these.

Although these may be made by 2 or more artists, they came in as a set and they will be sold as a set. Complete sets are hard to find. The price comes out to a very reasonable $10.00 per animal as opposed to separately, which may run $20 and higher each.

International buyers: Shipping on this set will be up to US$21.00 maybe less if a box isn't used. Kindly contact us with intent to buy so that the price can be adjusted to cover the difference over what is automatically charged ($15.00) for U.S. addresses BEFORE the purchase is made.
