A Japanese bronze okimono, signed Miyao Ei,  depicting a farmer wearing a hat and finely engraved robes with floral motifs. Attached to his obi there is a sake bottle, while in his left hand he holds an inro, a traditional Japanese container. Beside him, the sickle is resting by his side, and he holds a pipe, known as kizeru, in his right hand.

The signature “Miyao Ei 宮尾栄助” emphasizes the importance and renown of the Japanese artist. Miyao Eisuke is considered the most celebrated bronze sculptor of the Meiji Period, a time of remarkable artistic revival in Japan. His signature adds value to the Okimono, confirming its authenticity and origin.

The okimono itself is a superb example of artistry. The detailed dressing of the peasant and the care with which the floral patterns are engraved demonstrate Miyao Ei’s skill and attention to detail. The use of bronze as a material also reflects the Japanese tradition of craftsmanship, which has a long history of using metals to create high-quality works of art.

This sculpture is a significant work of art not only for its aesthetic beauty, but also for its historical and cultural value. It represents an era of great artistic renewal in Japan and is a testament to the skill and talent of Miyao Eisuke as one of the leading sculptors of the time.
