Large Japanese carved bear growling, circa 1930s

Large Japanese carved bear growling, circa 1930s Japanese  bear carving %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
This is a superbly carved wooden Japanese bear shown prowling on all four legs while growling, circa 1930s. It has lovely colour and patina with areas of wear highlighted by their lighter tone. The carver has captured the delicate beauty of an actual bear's coat of fur. The bear is posed in such a way that it oozes character and charm, and because of its relatively large size can be displayed on the floor as well as on a table top.

The bear has been carved from a single piece of timber, probably cedar which was the preferred material for the Hokkaido-based carvers.

In our opinion this is one the best bears in a collection of 12 that we have acquired recently from the same source. It is also likely to be the oldest.
