A large patinated bronze okimono depicting an elephant defending itself from the attack of two tigers: one on its back and the other under its paw.

Very finely crafted, especially in the details of the elephant’s skin, contrasting with the double-patinated skin of the two tigers, each with a different sheen.

The okimono is signed under the belly of the elephant within a square reserve: Genryusai Seiya zo 誠谷作.

Genryusai Seiya was a master craftsman specialized in high-quality bronzes. His works included bronze animal studies as well as scenes of daily life featuring human figures.

This is a sculpture from the Meiji period (late 19th century). During this period, the most refined bronze works were produced, albeit not on a large scale compared to later works from the Showa period (1926–1989).
