Chinese Bone Carving of Dragons

About

This intricate sculpture is crafted entirely of carved bone, and rests on a rectangular plinth with canted angles. The sculpture is formed of dragons amidst waves, who breath fire that joins to provide a flame-like support for a separate globe that is engraved all over with further dragon depictions in relief.
