42 ThE hARE wITh ThE AmBER EyES edMuNd de WAAl Netsuke are miniature sculptures that were invented in 17 century Japan. The Hare with the Amber Eyes is a stunningly original memoir by Edmund de Waal. The story tells of Edmund’s inheritance of 264 wood and ivory netsuke from his Great Uncle Iggie in 1994 who lived in Japan. Edmund decides to trace the origins of these miniature sculptures and discovers a story far larger than he could ever imagine. Originating in Japan, the pieces take a round-the-world adventure before finally finding their way back home. A unique story and a snapshot of history, de Waal writes beautifully as he tells the tale.
