A rare ivory netsuke of a mountain god. Late 19th century

The composite long-haired creature with the body of a snake stands upright on scaly legs with hooves and belly pushed forward. The scaly arms end in four-clawed hands and flames emanate from the joints. The humanoid head with opened mouth is all the more fierce for the deep-set eyes and the two curved horns.
Height 7.9 cm
