China Beautiful Natural "Mountain Waters Painting" with Handsome Custom Frame

About

This Chinese extraordinary natural stone marble "painting" of a mountain backdrop fronted by a peaceful body of water, is both unique and remarkable. Called a dream stone Shih-hua it was cut from historic Dali marble found in the Cangshan mountains of western China. These mysterious mountains, unique in the world, are known for yielding incredible and fantastic natural landscaped works of art created over tens of millions of years from mineral inclusions that affected the process of ancient organic material which transformed into limestone and finally resulted in marble- a metamorphic hard stone. Handsome custom hard wood frame This particular dream stone is special- it is considered a master work of fine natural detail. We have had it framed in a handsome hardwood tabletop arts and crafts style frame without glass. It is from our private collection and is one of the finest we have encountered originally coming from a Chinese private collection we accessed many years ago. Dimensions: frame: 14 inches high and 26 inches wide site: 6 inches high and 14.5 inches wide Provenance: Private Chinese collection, Yunnan, China. Catalog reference: Schneible Fine Arts: Dreaming of Dream Stones China's Extraordinary Natural Stone Paintings (photo) History of Shih-hua: This art form is centuries of years old since the Ming dynasty. Dream stones became favored art in the west particularly since the 19th century when French collectors named them Pierres de reve.
