An antique okimono, cream to gold with distinct markings and striations, engraved details contrasting with open areas of smooth polished ivory, depicting a falconer with an eagle and monkey, the eagle gripped tightly by one of its legs, showing a fierce gaze, but folding her wings as she comes to rest. The man is most likely the cadger of a hunting party, as falconry was quite popular in Japan, and someone must be appointed to provide a perch for the bird. This woodsman may have been called to deal with his master’s animals, and bears an expression of uncertainty as the eagle bates and the monkey importunes.
