As part of our Japanese art collection we are delighted to offer this most unusual high quality bronze okimono of a Tiger by the highly regarded Akosofu Gyoko , the Artist has captured the tiger with incredible movement poised as if to strike with its back hunched , its shoulders raised , and its head reared in an aggresive but almost comical manner , almost drawn as a charicature of a Tiger ! , the heavy bronze cat has striped details chiselled into his coat , he is further highlighted with parcel gilded teeth and claws , a realistic pink tongue and menacing gilt and shakudo eyes, the underside is signed by Akosofu Gyoko in an oblong seal , he stands on a wonderful hardwood stand carved with leaf and bark design to represent the forest setting , a truly magical and unusual okimono by a high quality artist .

The condition is superb throughout !!
