Contemporary Wood-Carved Netsuke
Netsuke were created as toggles to hold pouches and cases on the obi sash worn with the kimono. Over the centuries netsuke have come to be highly personalised statements of great artistic and historical value. This exhibition showcases contemporary netsuke carved of wood by living netsuke craftsmen in Japan, plus netsuke created by contemporary artists. A touring exhibition by The Japan Foundation, Sydney, presented by the Consulate-General of Japan in Perth.
