As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this high quality Meiji Period 1868-1912 bronze and mixed metal okimono that although unsigned we can confidently attribute to Sano Takachika, the humorous pair of muscular Oni stand upon a fitted lacquered base and wrestle with a huge crystal ball above their heads, the artist has decorated one loincloth with a Leopard skin pattern with the other finely inlaid in various mixed metals , you will note the masks on the legs as well as the gold bracelet and anklets on each Oni , a further trait of the model of a single Oni by Takachika now housed in the Khalili collection , a fascinating high quality mixed metal Okimono for your Japanese works of art collection .
