Whimsical Sasano-Bori Birds
$45 – $125
- The Japanese art of Sasano-Bori wood carving has been a tradition for over a thousand years. It requires the use of very fine chisels on wood from only two particular types of tree deemed strong enough to support the delicate shaved “feathers” of each figure. We offer a selection of whimsical vintage birds from hawks to owls. Each is a textbook lesson in the art of the handmade – obsessively carved, delicately painted and signed by hand. Vintage artisan finds from our cabinet of curiosities. No two alike.
