Brush washer in green jade. Carved in the shape of a lotus plant. Two leaves serve as water receptacles, one large and one small, probably the large one for rinsing the brush and the small one for clean water. Finely chiseled and meticulously detailed. The brush washer rests on three points that are strongly off-center in a very elegant way. This decentering at the limit of the imbalance is a feat of the artist and gives a very specific elegance to this sculpture. Large about 15 cm. Fine condition
