Beautifully cast, this was bought on a recent trip to Manila, Philippines from a dealer I have bought from before. I bought it for the simple reason because of the fine detail and so realistic being a beetle collector for many years. Meiji Japan was famously the era in which, after nearly 300 years of almost complete isolation from the globe, Japan began to trade openly with Europe and the West. Consequently, Meiji Japan saw a new flourishing in the arts, as craftsmen and artists found their work in high demand overseas. It would lead to a vast expansion in production, and the development of a new'national' style.
