A Japanese ivory sectional okimono of falconer and two children
Late Meiji Period
the falconer carved wearing long robes and armguard, holding a small platform with a bird of prey perched on top looking at the man's other raised hand, on his left stands a small boy and to the left sits a young girl holding a large hat, all on a circular base with incised signature to the underside -- 8 3/8in. (21.2cm.) high, (one figure slightly loose).
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
