Pair Monumental Antique Japanese Meiji Carved Wooden Bald Eagle Sculptures
Click thumbnails for expanded view.
We are proud to present two of the largest and most impressive examples of Japanese okimono animal carving we have ever seen. Depicting fierce, perched eagles with raised wings and squirrels at their feet, each measures approximately 47" tall, 32" across and 30" deep (119 by 81 by 76 cm). Neither is signed and their condition is good. There are scratches, stress cracks, wear and small losses, including to the tail and talon of one figure. The scale and quality of these statues suggests they were likely commissioned or produced for major exhibition such as world's fair or exposition. Okomono sculpture was featured in the Japanese exhibits at the world expositions in Vienna (1871), New York (1876), Philadelphia (1876), Paris (1878, 1879 and 1900), Amsterdam (1883), Chicago (1893), and London (1910).
