A well carved okimono of a man playing a shamisen and singing, with his son at his feet and two monkeys, one grabbing a sort of vane of wich a third animal is waving two.
Unclear what the third animal is depicting.
The piece is carved out of a single piece of ivory, most likely hippopotamus tooth (concentric growt lines).
A report from an expert will be added to confirm that the okimono can be legaly sold in the EU. Bidders outside the EU should check own law on import of antique ivory.
