One of the hardest things for me to find for my displays is tenpai, figurines of people or animals, structures etc. Yesterday as I made my rounds of antique stores and the St Vinnies of the world I ran across the attached figure. Hand carved from wood, this fisherman stands about 14 inches from head to foot. The fishing pole extends it furthur. Ten dollars plus tax (here about another dollar) Normally I try and work the price but felt the asking price was already more than fair.

This doesn't happen very often, but often enough to keep me making the rounds......Smile

I can see this used with a scroll of a river scene and a willow for the bonsai

Nice score Dick, thrift stores are my favorite places to hunt, also garage sales. I've found quite a few great things, pots with chops, scrolls an other bonsai related items. Good Hunting Pete
