A small amber netsuke measuring around an inch square and 8mm thick. This netsuke uses the Japanese chidori (plover) motif. The main body is sculpted from baltic amber, the beak and feet are made from red coral, the aye is made from mother of pearl and Whitby jet, and the himotoshi collar is made from red dear antler. The detail on the tail was completed using Japanese urushi.
This netsuke was completed in summer 2016.
