Chinese Qing Dynasty Hand-Carved Wooden Temple Corbel with Detailed Figures

$4,999

About the Item

A Chinese Qing Dynasty period hand-carved wooden temple corbel from the 19th century with detailed figures and custom base. Created in China during the Qing Dynasty, this corbel comes from a temple, where it was hand-carved in wood with many stunning details. This corbel showcases a spectacular openwork carving with a great attention to detail. Three Chinese bearded characters are depicted, perhaps two scholars and a god or celestial guardian on the right. Each character wears a traditional costume highlighted by black painting. The detail on these characters is exquisite, as can be seen in the folds of their dress, the elaborate headwear and the intricate armor. A custom made wooden base supports this beautiful piece. This 19th century Qing Dynasty Chinese hand-carved wooden temple corbel will make for a gorgeous addition to any home, perhaps displayed in a living room or foyer where it would no doubt be a tremendous conversation starter.
