A pale greenish-white nephrite landscape boulder

Of irregular contour, carved to one side with a luohan reading a book while seated on a hillside to the right of a tree trunk and reversed by another monk seated in meditation on a ledge backed by faceted rocks with surrounding vegetation; the softly polished matrix displaying some icy white patches and pale russet inclusions, the irregular surfaces of the base area suggesting that it might be a fragment from a larger sculpture.
4 3/4in (12cm) height of boulder
6 1/4in (16cm) height including wood stand
