Rare Carved Chinese Spirit Stone with Poem in Ancient Calligraphy
This graceful spirit stone evokes a mystery. Delicately carved in multicolored soapstone, it depicts a beautiful woman sitting beside a river, gazing at a flock of birds in the sky. On the opposite side is a poem about the woman, carved in very old Chinese calligraphy and colored green. A calligraphy instructor at the China Institute in New York said there was a date etched in the side of 1894. That could be the date of the poem or the stone’s creation. Because the writing is in an older Chinese script, an accurate translation is difficult. The stone may be a love token or a memorial to this woman. Whatever the mystery, it is a beautiful elegant work of art, and a true treasure. Measures 8″x5″x2, 2 pounds.
