Mouse okimono, Japan. Cast iron, remnants of gilding or gold paint. Mid 20th century. 3.25" (8.9 cm) high by 4.5" (11.4 cm) wide. Another okimono from the a small group of cast iron animals that was found in a burlap bag in a rural peddler's one-room home in Southwest China. Because of the language barrier, no explanation was provided, but their forms are obviously influenced by a mid-century aesthetic. In a few instances, there are multiple iterations of one animal showing increasing abstraction, as if the artist or studio was exploring the form over time. i have two mice, this one and another that is more faceted.
