Jens Praet: “‘Euhm,’ you’d probably say! My mother gave me this wonderful Shunga Netsuke carved from Mammoth Ivory as a gift a couple of years ago. It has been around in my studio ever since. To me, this object has the strong dualistic power to transform an initial rather shocking feeling of embarrassment into admiration - the subtle attention to its miniscule details and craft are truly a joy for the eye.”
