19th Century Chinese Scholars Ruyi Display Stand

About

For thousands of years, precious Chinese artworks have been displayed on auspicious wooden pedestals. Recognized today as pieces of art, root sculptures like this stand are born from the scholarly tradition of surrounding oneself with objects that reflect the natural world. Decorated with ruyi, a traditional mushroom motif symbolizing good fortune and longevity, this pedestal has a wonderful sculptural form, whether elevating another object or standing on its own.
