An Extraordinary Chinese Jade Carving Of A Dog
This piece of sculpted jade as a work of art is extraordinary and beautiful. It is unconventional and unique in form and style. The animal is in a symmetrically balanced crouched position. It has a round object in its mouth representative of the embroidered ball usually associated with the image of foo dogs. The jade is dark green but its translucent character is evident when viewed with a bright light. This quality is readily apparent along the fringes. The white streak that starts midway over the head weaves lengthwise from the right side and underneath, to the left side of the belly and finally to the left side of the face and ball. The white diffuses to a light greenish tone. This piece is in excellent condition, no cracks or repairs. There appear to be insignificant chips or irregularity on the toe nails, front & rear right. This flaw could also be the result of the sculpting process. The carving is at least 12 3/4″ long and 2 1/4″- 2 3/4″ wide and 4″ high at the rear (from knuckle to tail arc). This piece is 8 lbs.
