The subject of the first exhibition of the Moro Antik Gallery were the netsukes, the small japanese “toggle” pieces from Japan. We presented 120 pieces for the visitors, selected from 15 private collections from Hungary.
 Through this 120 netsukes we can be allowed to inspect the old Japanese weekdays, religion and mythological world. Most of these netsukes had published in our catalogue for the first time.
