Large & Fine Antique Chinese Carved Bone Faux Ivory Group Figure Statue Carving :
Offered with : A rare, large, and very finely carved antique ox bone figure of the 4 Heavenly Kings. The antique figure was carved from 100% genuine natural and solid material (NOT man made, but hand carved from fine and valuable natural material, guaranteed). You can see the grain and cross-hatching in the material. It is an antique that was legally imported into the U.S. many, many years ago. Features the four warriors with various weapons and mythical animals - including a flying dragon and Qilin (foo lion) in motion with its feet kicked up and back. I believe the group is battling in the air, as there are flowing clouds around them and beneath their feet. Very fine and extravagant details throughout, including the expressions on the warriors' faces, the many embellishments to their armor, the textured skin of the Qilin and dragon, etc. Further enhanced with dark pigment accents. Comes on the elaborate pierced and carved wood stand, which is original to the figure. Measures approx 13.5 in. high x 7 in. wide.
Very good condition, with minor repairs to the handles of the two weapons and the umbrella handle (see the last three photos). Due to the nature of the material, this will only be shipped to a U.S. address. NO international shipping. A one of a kind antique statue, you will not find another one! Don't miss out!SHIPPING COST INCLUDES FULL INSURANCE.
