A large boxwood netsuke depicting Shoki capturing a frightened Oni. This netsuke, with its dynamic scene and impeccable details, captures the essence of Japanese mythology and the battle between good and evil. The figure of Shoki, the legendary demon hunter, is masterfully depicted, with a sword in his right hand and the honorable task of restraining the frightened Oni with his other hand. The perfect details of Shoki’s hair, the spotted skin of the Oni, and Shoki’s robe reflect the artist’s skill in carving wood with great precision and realism. The frightened Oni struggling within Shoki’s grasp adds movement and tension to the scene. The Oni is portrayed with a vivid and fearful expression, conveying a sense of threat and danger. The beauty of the color and patina, combined with the luster of the boxwood, in this netsuke depicting Shoki with an Oni, adds a tactile component to the artwork, inviting touch to appreciate its texture and feel. These details contribute to creating a multisensory and engaging experience for the observer of the netsuke.
