GJPaw salesis very pleased to offer a White Hardstone Carving of an Elephant. The piece is creatively reminiscent of the pair of elephants that were commissioned to sit at the side of the Qianlong Emperor's throne. White Elephants have been considered highly sacred and have been kept throughout Southeast Asia as a symbol of Royal Power and Good Fortune. The surface of the statue is well carved and well polished, with the piece likely being created during the 20th century. The piece is in very good condition and stands on a custom-made, sensitively carved hard wood base. The measurement of the carving, not including the stand, is 6.75 inches wide by 4.25 inches tall (17.1 cm by 10.8 cm). The piece comes from an important Midwestern collection and was originally collected in China many years ago. The piece has enormous presence and would be an important addition to any jade collection or collection of Chinese antiques and art. Good luck with your offerding!
