It's time, once again, for our own Bob Goode to present his annual junishi (zodiac) lecture.  The zodiacal animal for the coming year is the dragon.  The dragon is one of the most common supernatural creatures found in both Western and Eastern Mythology. Bob will discuss the role of the dragon in the culture of China and Japan, with emphasis on the many ways it is represented in  antique and contemporary netsuke .

If you have any dragon netsuke or any other netsuke you would like to share with our group, please bring them to the meeting.   

Please also bring cash for your food/drink.

 

Please RSVP to:  Jeffrey Klotz, 973-616-2988  or jklotz@takaraasianart.com

I hope you will join us there.
