About the artwork

Ivory statue of a falconer

Japanese | Meiji period, 19th century

The masterly carving here shows every fold of the falconer’s costume and the soft plumage of the bird. This piece was probably made by a member of the Tokyo Ivory Sculptors’ Association, which was set up by the governemtn to ensure that the skills were not lost.
