A well detailed carving out of a single piece of ivory of an Ainu (アイヌ), an East Asian ethnic from North Japan - Hokkaidō and formerly North-Eastern Honshū - and Russia.
He is leaning against a tree looking out for pray or maybe on wach for enemys. Since the North of Japan is a cold region he is wearing thick fur boots.
There is a signature but it could not be deciphered and what appears to be a collectors number.
A report from an expert is added to confirm that this okimono can be legaly sold in the EU. Bidders outside the EU should check own law on import of antique ivory.
