This elegant Japanese zoomorphic gourd appears to have been manipulated with constricted midsection and crooked neck.  The undulating neck and slightly protruding stem suggests a bird.  Its dried contents rattle around inside.  It has been well cared for and has acquired a warm patina from handling.  It retains a red suspension cord.
