A Japanese ivory spherical okimono depicting a coiled dragon with a clawed sphere. The dragon is a mythical and sacred figure in Japan, symbolizing power, prosperity, and protection, often found in art and culture.

The dragon is intricately carved around the sphere, with finely detailed scales that give its body a realistic and magnificent appearance. The dragon’s fangs are pronounced, and its open jaws reveal the tongue and teeth. The eyes, incredibly expressive, are made of black horn. Overall, the aura of power emanating from this majestic creature captivates the observer.

The most impressive feature of the okimono is the clawed sphere held by the fierce dragon. The dragon’s claws tightly grip the sphere, demonstrating its power and strength.

The entire sculpture exudes a sense of dynamism and strength, with the dragon appearing ready to take flight or unleash its might. The precision and skill required to create this ivory spherical okimono in the shape of a coiled dragon are a testament to exceptional artistry.
