Right down to the scales! 16 cm length, 7 cm wide, 1 cm high. Lizard as A Symbol of Birth, Death, Regeneration, and Survival.

The ability of the lizard to drop its tail, and grow it back has led to it being a symbol of growth, regeneration, and survival. The lizard hibernates through winters and reawakens in spring. This symbolizes resurrection and rebirth.

The sleek and sinuous lizard is regarded as an erotic animal, and therefore a symbol of sexual activity in Japan. This item is in the category "Antiques\Asian Antiques\Japan\Netsuke". The seller is "cosmic_goods" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
