The Genius Of Man
Chinese bone scroll holder deftly carved and further ornamented with an incredibly realistic wooden frog wrapped around the upper part. The piece is hollow and comes apart to make two pieces with a hollow inner tube. It measures 6 3/4" in height and is painted with a complex water scene with lily pads, dragonflies, frogs, water striders, butterflies, and other water loving denizens. The pigment colors are a soft green, black, and brown...A truly exceptional creation from an ancient culture with many eons of talent to fall back upon.
