Patina somewhat rubbed at top of the head and shoulders, due to handling, few nicks and chips, all in all very good condition.
Pieces like these are fairly rare and the height is usually around 12 inches. The stone is swallowed up by the tree, while it is growing. It is a phenomenon highly appreciated in bonsai, in which case the tree is manipulated into surrounding the stone. In large, this is a more natural occurrence, growing to look like a person wrapped in a garment, such as Kan’on and, less frequent, Daruma.
H 3.4 inches (8.5 cm).
Very good condition.
Height 14 inches, without the base.
