About

Extraordinary natural work, one of a kind. Custom Chinese framed, N100 Rare red flower marble stone- a Chinese Favorite Is that a bird I spy ? This Chinese extraordinary natural stone "painting" of an expansive image of red flowers on a mountain vista could remind us of a unique experience in our lives. Notice the almost bird like image at the Summit! The powerful and colorful depiction is executed in natural white, light blue and red or pink colors- a Chinese favorite. This is called a dream stone Shih-hua. They are 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. Distinctive figures naturally found in dream stones like this one are among the most coveted types of dream stone paintings in China. Weewre fortunate to acquire this one many years ago from a private Chinese collection. 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. This thin marble stone "painting" is approximately 1/4" thick and is cut from a large slab of rough material revealing incredible patterns in soft white and gray colors. Its weight is surprisingly modest- easily hung with standard hardware. Dimensions: Frame: 17.25 inches high and 31 inches wide. Site: 14" and 22.5" Provenance: Private Chinese collection, Yunnan, China. History of dream stone "paintings": Chinese painting stone that were cut from stone found on Shuang Yang mountain in Dali mountains Captivating compositions, They might remind us of a long string of rugged mountain caps from a distance. These dream stones are cut from a scarce regional stone yielding notoriously “fuzzy” detailed paintings. To find examples possessing clear, contrasting detail like this one is indeed a rare find. Fine stone paintings like this example are rare as access to and availability of resource material diminishes. After a thin coating of wax is carefully applied to its surface to protect and reveal its beautiful subtle colors, this stone painting is signed upper right position with poetic verse and seal of an artisan who describes its majestic beauty.
