十七 / 十八世紀 壽山石雕羅漢坐像 《尚均》款


deftly carved, the deity seated with the left knee bent supporting the left elbow, the head slightly lowered reading a book held in the hands, the hair, beard, and eyebrows finely incised and painted in black pigment, dressed in a loose robe falling open at the chest and draped in naturalistic folds, a cowl covering the head with the hems finely incised with a brocade pattern and inset with small colored stones and coral, all supported on a rocky base with branches, the semi-translucent stone of a creamy color with blushes of red at the cowl


Height 3½ in., 9 cm

In overall good condition, except for one inlay missing. Some minute nicks and tiny bruises to the extremities, and light scratches to the base, as can be expected. The stone with some minor natural veining. The base with five small circular felt pads.


整體品相良好,惟一處嵌飾缺失,邊角處見些許細磕、碰傷,底有輕微劃痕,屬正常。石料略帶天然紋理。底部粘有五處圓形毛氈墊。

Skillfully fashioned, the present figure embodies the stylistic influence of Yang Yuxuan and Zhou Bin, two of the best known and talented masters in soapstone carving. Compare related soapstone figures in this stylistic context, such as one depicted in a similar seated pose on a rockwork base, but holding a long scarf in the hands, attributed to the 18th century, sold at Christie's London, 10th May 2011, lot 44; and another without the base, carved holding a peach, with the face rendered in a similar style, attributed to the 17th or 18th century, sold at Christie's New York, 21st-22nd March 2013, lot 1365.
