Knitting Girl

I finished this carving up last November. It's of boxwood and lightly stained with alder dye. Not much to say about it. I wanted to try working on another figural netsuke and was looking at some paintings and drawings by Millet and thought it would make a good subject to do a young peasant girl knitting. I may make a matching ojime for this netsuke in the shape of a basket holding some balls of wool.
