58/365/Objects in 61

I have this reproduction netsuke that is (I think) supposed to be a komainu aka foo dog aka guard lion, which looks kind of dragony, and I keep it on top of my jewelry box, a fierce inexpensive intimidator (whom I love) guarding some less fierce inexpensive jewelry (which I also love). But who guards the netsuke? May it not “disappear.”


  1. You sound like a staunch guardian of the netsuke.

  2. I guess it depends on what kind of people you let into your house--I advise against inviting any of the shiftier sounding bloggers amongst us (who shall remain unnamed).
