New Acquisitions of Netsuke and Works of Art
The new acquisitions of December include six netsuke in ivory and wood, a rare bokuto, (known in the West as the "doctor's sword"), some inro and sagemono, four lacquer boxes and six Chinese objects in the literate tradition. To conclude the selection we present seven new ceramic vases by the English artist Terry Davies. To view the objects you can visit the “Works of Art” galleries. The December new acquisitions of Japanese prints are still online in the "New Acquisitions" gallery.
