Provinces in Southwest China, especially in Guangxi and Southern Yunnan have low mountain formations and of rock cliffs. These regions especially those under the jurisdiction of Minority People have interesting plant life, especially fast growing plants that grow all over the rocks. The natives harvest these interesting root sculptures. Their practice of harvesting tree roots has been strongly discouraged so the market today is not flooded with three roots for sale. This sculpture does stand on its own legs and has the most interesting knarly and knotty root growth.
It is hollow and can be used as an umbrella stand and a holder for painting scrolls. The interesting texture on the dark knarly area was the result of growing over a rock.
Dimension: 53 inches in height, 12 inches diameter in the opening. Condition: good with natural imperfections.
