19th century Chinese scholar’s rock in a shape of a dramatic mountain massif with foothills and multiple ranges with numerous peaks. Must have been used as a brush rest - a lot of dark areas on the surface appear to be dried ink. The piece gives a very strong feeling of weathered rock shaped by water and time, and overpowering energy of the mountain range. Variegated grey Qilian limestone with numerous natural fissures, very beautiful patina, newer very well fitted wooden stand. Excellent object for contemplation on scholar’s desk. Length with stand 6 3/8 inches.
