A VERY RARE piece probably the Emperor's Hunter, A rare subject NOT SEEN FOR SOME TIME, this noble gentleman is quite special, looking through the archives this would certainly have been a custom commission for a rather important person, the detailing and finishing are second to none as is the casting. This piece looks toward the earlier part of the Meiji dynasty based on the wear and condition.
The bronze is stunning, in excellent condition throughout, the colours vibrant and strong and he has a lovely glow to him. The arrow is missing and a replacement wooden one is used in the pictures for display.Size 85 cms and 45 kilos in weight.
