A Meiji period bronze study of a lion and lioness, the lion striding forward and snarling with the lioness slinking by his side, on a root-wood base. Signed in a seal, ‘Genryusai Seiya’. Japanese, circa 1890. Footnote: Genryusai Seiya was the master craftsman in charge of a workshop which specialized in export wares of the highest quality. Production included human genre figures, vases and exotic bronze models of animals probably influenced by the opening of Tokyo Zoological Gardens in 1882.
