Boxwood nestuke depicting an oni crawled under a large straw hat, almost completely hidden under it, except for the clawed hand holding the hat at the top, to defend himself from beans being thrown during the Setsubun ceremony.
Two small inlaid ivory spheres, similar to toasted soy seeds are thrown against the oni during the oni-yarai ceremony, Setsubun day is celebrated every year the first days of February.
The bottom shows a visible eye and overlapping limbs that make the himotoshi.
During this holiday, Japan celebrates the return of warm seasons.
They send the oni away during Setsubun (or Mame maki) by throwing beans on demons and chanting the magic words "Oni wa soto!" Fuku wa uchi!” (Demons out! Good fortune in!). Kids then pick up the beans and eat one for each of year of their age.
