This is a beautiful 33 kilo nephrite jade free form sculpture encased in a natural black locust root. The root wood forms an arching circle around the jade form.
Slabs of jade this size are unique pieces of art unto themselves. This jade is a deep green high quality material sought after by carvers, artists, and jewelers.
Jade has historically used for ceremonial purposes in many cultures. During the Chinese dynasties Jade was used as a form of currency much in the way other cultures used gold and silver. To this day there are pieces of Jade in China worth more than gold by weight.
The wood for these piece is harvested in the mixed hardwood forests of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Being naturally durable to the elements these pieces are found dead in the forest, partly sculpted by the weathering of nature. after drying we carefully choose and compare stones with different wood pieces to find the ones that fit aesthetically. The the wood is cut, sculpted, ground, sanded and finally a finish is applied.
The finished product is an absolute one of a kind sculpture that brings a natural element to your home.
