Offered is this wonderfully carved, detailed landscape featured Chinese Ink stone.
A good ink stone is as important as the quality of the ink, as it will affect the quality and texture of the ink that is ground upon it. Ink stones are made from many types of stone. This superb example is made from a beautiful and richly textured Duan stone. It is exquisitely carved and features a traditional Chinese landscape with wise men or deities and bamboo trees. Landscape painting is the most important genre in the history of Chinese art, and has been since at least the Northern Song period, when representations in all forms have played a critical role in Chinese art, culture and philosophy.
