Beautifully carved brush pot was found in Beijing’s artist studio. Boxwood carving is a common art form exercised by artists in ancient China. However this particular piece was carved out of a boxwood tree root, which adds to the uniqueness of this period piece. The lines flaws naturally with the shape of the trunk, the end result is a timeless art piece as well as a functional scholar’s object. 4” W x 4” L x 5.5” T.
