VERY LARGE AND OUTSTANDING CHINESE FAUX IVORY CARVING
Description: Very large and outstanding antique Chinese faux ivory carving of a boat made in the shape of a dragon, holding a festive celebration of multiple characters on his back. The dragon has been portrayed with enormous detail, including the scales, mane and teeth, with a fierce look and holding in his mouth the pearl of wisdom (freely carved inside the mouth; see the attached pictures). A ring has under his chin, and this ring has also been independently carved from the same piece of material. The back of the dragon sustains a festive scene with a very large number of characters who are cooking, drinking and celebrating in many different ways. All characters are independently carved, with great depth of detail, and complementary painted decoration. The roof that protects the central characters can be detached, and it will be boatped like this for a greater safety of the piece. It is for the buyer to decide if he/she would like to glue it in place. It is not really necessary, as the piece fits perfectly within the four posts. N.B.: The wooden base, which is modern, in mint condition and custom made is not included as such. If the buyer would like to acquire it as well, he/she would have to pay no price for it but its boatment expenses (this cost may vary according to countries. Please, contact me in order to ask for your particular case). The boatment of the carving is free.
