Lacquered wooden panel with inlaid bone figures - Shibayama bone, black lacquer, wood - With seal 'Komin' 光民 - Japan - ca. 1920
Shibayama Inlay (Shibayama Zōgan) is a lacquer art form distinguished by high relief carved inlays made from shell, coral, tortoiseshell, and ivory. Many gorgeous Shibayama crafts were exported during the Meiji period (1868–1912).
Shibayama is an art form which originated in Japan. Shibayama is the art of inlay on varnish. Due to the sensitivity of the art form and the vulnerability of the resulting intact pieces of Shibayama from the Japanese Meiji period, they are very valuable and appreciated by collectors. This is a wooden panel entirely hand painted and decorated with bone – signed. Paper was likely used at first.
The painted panel depicts a rural scene of a father and son on the land. The lot has been designed carefully and full of details.
The panel also contains a bone-carved signature of the maker.
The panel of 46x29 cm is in good condition, but some signs of wear on the edges.
