I have several Japanese objects that I would like to know more about, and have wanted to know for several years. They are not particularly exotic or valuable in any way but I'm fond of them. Would it be acceptable to post images of them to this Group and ask for help or would that be inappropriate ??

Perhaps not necessarily post to Group Images but to Discussion if more acceptable ?

Any thoughts on this from Group members ??

thanks

the objects I have ...
a netsuke
a bronze (?) buddha
a Ghost of Kinto (?) - pull the string and the eyes roll / the tongue pokes out

just simple objects but I have had them for many years
and all my life I have been cursed by a need to know
lol

Your objects are probably far less pedestrian / more exotic?

PS

Horror? I don't know? I thought more Trickster, practical Joker?
I have a small red head on a flat stick with a string behind it.
Sort of looks like it might be made of papier mache?
Pull on the string and the head's eyes roll up and it's tongue pokes out.
A child's toy or a souvenir from a place in Japan or relates to a festival perhaps?
The stick has Japanese characters on it.
It seems to have some age to it
and I assume it relates to a Folk Tale?
I thought if I posted an image some one might recognise the character
and translate the writing?
I've Googled with no success

Humm...Maybe you should write a blog about it on your home page first.

If you don't mind your images would be deleted from the result of not suiting the concept of this group..you could do ;-)

I meant to my HomePage, nottiestyle
not the group
(I live in absolute fear of Moderators)
lol

Perhaps when uploaded I could post a discussion topic here
asking members to view my home page
and hopefully shed light?
