A Boxwood Netsuke of Blind Man

Particularly well carved and very beautiful dark patina this character represents a blind man (often considered as a masseur) with a tumor on the back of the skull seems to try to lift a huge stone. This version is challenged by another version indicating that this stone is rather a hypertrophy of his testicles (lymphoedema). an erased plate of tin takes the place and place of the signature.
