GJPaw salesis very pleased to offer a LARGE Chinese Carved Stone Stele. The stele is inscribed with writing and carved in relief with five small Buddhist figures in various mudras around a larger central Buddhist figure. Stelae like this have been carved since the Qin Dynasty and were used to commemorate talented officials, inscribe poems, or detail important events. The detail to the central figure is really astounding and of much higher quality than many of the pieces that have come on the market. Comparison with sale records shows that this piece is likely several hundred years old and could be worth over $15,000. It comes from an important Midwest collection and was collected well over a decade ago by the original owner in the countryside of Heibei Province, China.
The piece measures 17.75 inches tall by 15.25 inches wide (45 cm by 39 cm) and is in good, stable condition for its age. Please note that the piece has been repaired from several large fragments - see all images for areas of restoration. There are also minor losses and tool marks visible on the piece. All telltale signs of a real piece of antiquity. The piece is VERY heavy, the shipping cost is our best estimate, if the shipping ends up costing less, we will refund the extra amount after payment. This piece would make a wonderful addition to any significant collection of antiquities, ancient stone, or Chinese antiques.
