A fine late 19th century Chinese wood carving.
This two piece statue stands 43cms tall.
It is made from carved wood, natural forming woods and burl wood sections to create a very interesting and life lake statue.
The face, hands, legs and feet are very life like with the expertly carved face showing very clear expression.
The surfaces show a warm patina and darkened lacquer surfaces. When viewed very closely, very well hidden, old hand cut nails can be seen below the lacquer surface which shows the very unique method of constructing such a life like figure.
A very interesting antique Chinese wooden statue.
