Chinese Sanxingdui SculptureBoxwoodLane.com
Stone Chinese Sanxingdui sculpture - This is a really interesting piece... This sculpture is based on one of the incredible finds from the excavations in the Sanxingdui region in China of a civilization that is thought to have existed around 5000 - 3000 BC. It was unknown and undiscovered until, in the spring of 1929, a peasant found a piece of bright-colored jade while he was digging a ditch. This led to a great discovery of unusual remnants from a forgotten people. A discovery that would challenge the current understanding of ancient Chinese civilizations. This particular piece is based on the largest and best-preserved bronze upright human figure in the world - at about 8.5 feet tall - that was discovered on the Sanxingdui site. It is the "standing man" bronze statue. A statue that is believed to represent a High Priest. This unique statue has over-sized hands, bare feet and an intricately carved robe. It is thought that the large hands of the original sculpture at one time carried large elephant tusks. This particular item would certainly make an interesting conversation piece. It really stands out in a room with its unique look. It comes with the original Chinese packing box.
- Appears to be made of red and green jade and painted with various designs that enhance the intricate carvings in the stone.
- Measures about 20.5" tall.
- Part of our Estate Collection and in very good vintage condition. The stone has natural variations with some areas showing wear. Overall, an excellent and unique display piece.
