Kyoto, circa 1790
A reclining stallion, its limbs tucked beneath his body and tail sweeping round its left flank. The mane falls in thick tresses over its crest and forehead. The neck is raised, and it bears an alert expression. The hairwork, finely incised and stained black, bears light signs of wear. The eyes are inlaid in dark horn.
