Kawaii has long been a part of the Japanese Lexicon, and here is a perfect example, a pudgy little puppy carved from a natural burl of wood. It is roughly 14 x 9 x 10.5 cm high (5-1/2 x 3-3/4 x 4-1/4 inches). There is a slight nibble to his right ear, possibly a bit of mouse damage, but is in overall fine condition. A very rare folk carving hearkening back to the natural wood sculptures of the literati world.
