Fantastic Mexican amber carving depicting the Japanese folklore legend Tanuki. This piece is carved from beautiful Mexican amber and sits upon a hand carved wood base and obsidian stand. This guy would be a welcome addition to any home or office and is bound to draw attention and praise.

The tanuki has a long history in Japanese legend and folklore. Bake-danuki (化け狸) are a kind of tanuki yōkai (ghost) found in the classics and in the folklore and legends of various places in Japan.

Although the tanuki is a real, extant animal, the bake-danuki that appears in literature has always been depicted as a strange, even supernatural animal (wiki)
