God of Wisdom-Longevity Soapstone Carving CHINA old
This carving is probably 50 years old. The details are outstanding and the quality of the soapstone is also outstanding. The God of wisdom with elongated forehead is holding a peach for longevity. Oily smooth yellow-tan soapstone has very uniform matrix. The piece is small at 2 1/2" tall, but the very fine carving of face, hand and clothing makes this a special piece.
