As part of our oriental collection we are delighted to offer this fine quality one piece Japanese ivory okimono on its original hardwood stand , the artist has captured in amazing detail the moment when a lioness pounces from the riverbank to attack a hippopotamus group , the adult hippo appears to have just escaped the clutches of the lions paw as her juvenile is caught up in the turbulant waters below, a realistic and thought provoking carving when you consider the artist is unlikely to have ever seen these animals in their natural setting , the hippo's eyes are inset with black jet and the lioness has mother of pearl inset eyes further enhancing her menacing looks !

Signed to the underside by an artist called Hiroki.

The condition is all good with no damage or restorations.
