19th century Chinese natural rootwood scholar’s stone in a shape of a leaning rock or a leaping animal. The piece can be viewed from 4 sides, each view giving a wonderful impression of a mountain peak with crevices or a contorted body of a beast. Root of a tree lacquered red/brown and worn on protruding areas from handling. Very clever use of root formation, beautiful warm patina, wonderful piece for scholar’s desk. Appears to be inscribed on the side - see the detail on Enlargement 1. Height 3 1/2 inches.
