Comical Octopus Scroll, Meiji Period

360.00

A comical and playful portrayal of an octopus holding a magical fungus (ruyi) scepter. The image is evoking a literati scholar or a connoisseur in a seated-like pose.

The inscription generally reads:

Observing quietly the wonders this universe does, in reality one walks the difficult path of life.

The work is dated to 1906. Nothing is known who the artist was but possibly associated with the many poetry and painting circles that were blossoming during the Meiji period.

Size: 18.8” x 66.1”
