Netsuke Day 2008

Happy Netsuke Day to all our Nice Work population subset!

The lil feller's name is Zoshi.

Today, life’s exigencies permitting, we will visit the netsuke (根付) collection at LACMA. If success crowns our efforts we will bring you the full report. Or, well, no, not really. What we’ll bring you is the sort of report you get here. In any case, whatever you do, DO NOT BUDGE FROM THIS SPOT. We will be back shortly.

UPDATE: More LACMA netsuke photos on this site at THIS POST and also THIS ONE.

While you wait, enjoy this picture of the mountains of Topanga:

The monkeys have no tails in Topanga.
