Chinese Black and White Stone Basin

About

Carved with a deep depression, this sculptural vessel makes a dreamy bird bath, feeder or planter. As is, it can be appreciated simply for its organic beauty. The composite nature of this stone shows up as grey and white stripes, giving graphic punch to this natural specimen.
