Description

the substantial stone carved in the form of a large and a smaller carp leaping from a bed of turbulent swirling waves, each fish detailed with a scaly body with dorsal and pectoral fins, their eyes inlaid with tiger's eye stone bosses, the larger fish with its mouth agape showing sharp teeth and hollowed to form a vase, carved in high relief to the exterior with a sinuous striding dragon, the stone of a translucent rose-pink tone with icy inclusions, the wood stand deftly carved in openwork with lotus dispersed amongst flowing waves
