This ivory netsuke--a small sculpture that serves as a purse--was made by Gyokkosai during the Nineteenth Century. It shows a woman playing playing a samisen, a monkey drinking sake and an animated skeleton holding a fan. The attention to detail is amazing, particularly on the ribs and fingers of the skeleton.
