I just acquired this fine bronze Japanese hare sculpture for my collection. This BIG hare, or usagi as the Japanese would call it, was sculpted in Japan around 1980. I have not been able to find who the sculptor was as there are no markings to be found anywhere on this fellow. He's very massive, compared to my other bronze pieces, and measures 26" tall, 13" wide and 19" deep. He weighs in at 43 1/2lbs!! A very highly detailed piece and a very rare piece as I've only seen one other in all of my years of collecting and that one is displayed in a fine arts gallery, of Japanese, Asian and European art, in New England.
Thank you all very much for stopping by!!!!
