An unusual green jade landscape boulder
18th century
Carved from a thin section of even greyish-green stone in crisp high relief, one side with two fishermen checking their baskets in a meandering river beside a bridge and a traveller crossing a rocky path through a pine grove, the other with two labourers tending a rice paddy field, a boy on a buffalo descending a steep cliff path, and a meditative gentleman tranquilly watching the scene from his thatched retreat standing on stilts beneath pine on the bank of the river, wood stand.
22.5cm (9in) wide (2).
