About

Extraordinary natural work, one of a kind. Custom framed and signed "Winter Sea" This Chinese extraordinary round natural stone painting of bands of churning ocean waves, mountains, or? Could remind us of a unique shoreline or mountain experience in our lives. The powerful and colorful depiction is executed in natural white, light blue and brown colors. 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. 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: 20 inches high and 28 inches wide. Site: 11.25" and 20.5"   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.
