Okimono Ivory Technique - Dilemma


Recommended Posts

Dear Friends,


I would be very grateful if you could share your ideas about the technique used in carving Okimono figures like the ones the fotos of which I attach.

In particular, I am interested how the straw matting the man is sitting on is made and the fringes of the clothes of the other man...

I've studied some written sources about netsuke, means of toning, scrimshaw technique, etc

Are these two the perfect examples of scrimshaw? Or?
