Shoushan Carving of a  Chinese Fisherman
$395.00

This original stone carving of a fisherman throwing his nets measures 6 3/4 inches tall by 5 1/2 inches wide by about 3 inches in depth.

It originated in China from about the middle -late part of the 20th century (circa 1960-1980).

It is carved from a mottled beige to brown stone known in China as Shoushan stone. It is a semi hard stone, often used for carving finely detailed calligraphic seals. It is softer than jade and harder than soapstone (steatite).

It is in outstanding condition, except for a very tiny (pencil point sized) rim chip on the edge of the fisherman's hat.
