19th century Chinese natural rootwood scholars rock in a shape of a leaning rock or a crouching animal. The piece can be viewed from 4 sides, each view giving a wonderful impression of a mountain peak with crevices and conveying the raw energy of the mountains. Root of a tree lacquered red/brown and worn on protruding areas to natural wood from handling. Very clever use of root formation, beautiful warm patina, wonderful piece for scholars table. Height 3 1/2 inches.
