This very old pot -- it has many wrinkles on the rim and all over the pot -- is of an unknown wood. It shows a Monkey or an abstract human and maybe some tree. It is so ugly as to be very beautiful indeed. I make no claim about the wood; it is neither zitan nor huanghuali but probably of some extinct Chinese wood. H is 13 cm, diameter is 12 cm. It has had a long history of travel: Beijing, Hong Kong, the US and now it is back in China. Where will it go next?
