A fabulous little bronze figure of a golden-eyed Tanuki dressed in priests robes dozing on a large prayer drum signed on the base what appears to be Yoshiyuki. The round drum is finished in a soft red color, while the figure itself is olive with brilliant gold eyes. It is 17 cm (6-1/2 inches) long and in excellent condition.
