Interesting Root Sculpture
Nature and Chinese culture go hand in hand. Similarly Chinese scholars take special interest in natural objects with artistic elements, such as tree roots and rocks. This piece of tree root sculpture came from Southern China in the provinces near Vietnam, Thailand and Burma. I once asked a Botanist a question: what kinds of tree or bush produced these roots? He smiled kindly and said roots were all the same, identification was impossible with leaves. So the only information I can offer is that it came from a fast growing plant that might be growing on rock cliffs. The interesting texture on the inside part of the sculpture was created by the rock that it was growing over. Dimensions: 24 inches long, 13 inches wide and 22 inches high
