The perfect gift for any horse or pony lover, this Pony Netsuke perfectly captures the spirit of this beautiful animal in miniature. This figurine is cast by hand in solid pewter in Middlebury, VT.
What is a netsuke, you ask? Netsukes (pronounced "net-skees") are miniature animal figurines, traditionally tied to the sash of a Japanese kimono. They are usually carved into wood or ivory. This pewter netsuke are a twist on the traditional ones, and many people like to collect them all as additions to their fairy or gnome gardens, or to use as game pieces, party favors, or stocking stuffers.
Horses and ponies symbolize strength, freedom, beauty, majesty, and spirit. They are also known for their emotional intelligence, used in equine therapy to heal trauma and anxiety.
Because each netsuke is made by hand, all dimensions are approximate. Subtle variations are natural.
