Early 20th Century Chinese White Marble Gnarled Root Tub

About

Like Ming scholars' root objects, this hand-carved tub in a gnarled root pattern embraces the Daoist affinities with nature and spontaneity that were widespread throughout China for thousands of years. It was created from a single block of white marble with sides that gently curve inward toward the inset base.
