Masatami – A Japanese rooster with hen

Ivory rooster with hen on a drum with a base to simulate the leather and with nails on the side in black horn.

The rooster (niwatori) symbolizes masculine beauty, power and strength. According to an ancient Chinese legend, a large drum (kankodori), used in wartime to gather troops, was used in times of peace as a roost for roosters. Acquired in Japan, the image of the rooster on the drum thus came to symbolize times of peace and happy citizens.

Signed Masatami-zo.

Edo early 19th century
