Stunning white nephrite replica of Western Zhou Dynasty of an anthropomorphic “supplicant” figure. This is what I would call a good “honest copy”. The lines on this piece are reminiscent of a Tlingit Native American image while the overall shape has an Aztec feel. This is a hand carved piece in the sense it was made by the human eye and hand although using a mechanized tool. There is an inclusion at the bottom that transverses the lower quarter. Included is an adjustable macramé cord. The surface should attain a nice shiny patina after being worn next to the skin after a couple of weeks. L: 9.1cm3.5in, W: 3.2cm/1.2in, and 4.3mm/0.17in thick. Free shipping via Hong Kong Registered Airmail.
