Explore our finely carved ivory netsuke depicting a unique Kirin, a mythical creature symbolizing good luck. This Kirin features a giraffe-like neck, a dog-like face, and sits like a horse while biting its long monkey-like tail. The artist added patchy spots to its hairy body, creating a striking texture through needle carving.

A note on Ivory: Real Ivory is the product of elephant hunting. We are strongly against diminishing any part of nature or living things for the sake of art or our amusement. All of our Ivory pieces were inquired on or before the end of 1960’s. We sell our precious ivory pieces in honor of the elephants and education of the antiquity for us and for generations to come.
