Hamano Naoyuki Kozuka


Recommended Posts

Excited about this piece.
Kozuka depicting Fukurokuju, the Japanese God of longevity. Often depicted with a long scroll (here rolled up) this scroll is suggested to have magical writings of scripture, other times suggested it is a book of fate that lists the lifespan of every person who will ever live.
Done in shibuichi with gold accents, the execution on this piece stuns me with it's detail. See the scroll itself and the mottled appearance, just splendid. The facial expressions are excellent and the eyes are done in a clever way.
Made by Hamano Naoyuki, of the Hamano Shozui line (student of 1st gen Noriyuki), the blues and purples of the shibuichi are stunning in hand, I have done the best I can to photograph.
