|Netsuke: Tiger by Matsushita Otoman|
Just a quick post today. I've been meaning to write about the excellent collection of netsuke at LACMA for the past few weeks, but time slips away. And I've been writing a whole lot about LACMA over the past month, what with the Tim Burton exhibit, the Ai Weiwei Zodiac Heads, and the Jeff Koons sculptures. I kind of feel bad spamming the museum photos.
But I'm pressed for time today and the netsuke deserves some blog love. ;-)
So, here are a few of my favorites on display from the Bushell Collection at LACMA's Japanese Pavillion.
|Netsuke: Wild Boar Rooting|
And, as promised, here are the monkey and the frog.
|Netsuke: Tiger and Monkey|
And here's a vid displaying a whole bunch of other pieces that are part of the rotating collection.
And set to the music of Enigma no less!!!
