It continues at an accelerated pace into the opening years of the twenty-first century with fresh stages of vital energy. This book presents the facinating netsuke and ojime art of Kiho Takagi, a Japanese artist of soaring imagination and superb skills. Kiho and some of his predecessors and contemporaries have lifted Japan's traditional miniature sculpture to new heights of excellence.
