 A Pale Celadon and Russet Jade Boulder

Qing Dynasty
Height: 17.2cm

Finely carved in high relief and in openwork, with a small figure standing beneath a towering cliff with layered rockwork, leaning on a staff and looking up at a branch growing precariously from a crag, surrounded by pine and maple trees highlighted in russet and grey tones, the reverse of the rocky boulder with two cranes beside a waterfall.
