Articulated Copper Creatures By Hiromi - For Sale

Articulated Copper Creatures By Hiromi
Price: $4200.00
When the Emperor Meiji disbanded the Samurai warriors, many armor makers turned to making other metal objects. Notable among these extraordinary craftsmen was Hiromi, who became famous for his lifelike articulated creatures, such as these four okimono in nigurome (brown-patinated copper), each one signed. Composed of dozens of individually crafted pieces, the larger crayfish is about 14-1/2 inches long, the smaller nine inches, the praying mantis seven inches, and the crab 4-1/2 inches across. Japanese, circa 1870.
