GJPaw salesis very pleased to offer a Chinese Scholar's Rock. The rock is naturally shaped in a form reminiscent of a writhing dragon rising from the waves and turning its head to look back over its coiled serpentine body. The piece has a nice metallic resonance and the texture of rippled water. It is composed of Taihu stone and comes from Lake Tai between Jiangsu and Zhejiang Provinces in China. Such stones have been appreciated for scholars over the centuries for their resemblance to life-like imagery and visual inspiration, and they have been depicted in numerous scholarly paintings. Their collection and study is a very important art-form, and they are known as Gongshi, or "fantastic rocks." This piece measures 11 inches (27.9 cm) tall including the custom hardwood stand. It is an amazing display piece for any important home, and would also be stunning amongst a pair of porcelain vases. Shipping costs to Canada will be comparable to the United States. We will ship worldwide.
