Chinese Wood Carving of a Phoenix – Qing Dynasty

$2,500.00

The hand carved wood panel depicts a Chinese phoenix, the bird of all birds,  surrounded by foliage and peonies. The divine bird is a symbol of high virtue and grace promising a peaceful world, the peonies symbolize abundance, honour and nobility. The panel used to be part of a window or door and exposure to the elements have given the wood a beautiful patina.

43′ tall 17″ wide, carved wood mounted on a contemporary stand, China (Qing Dynasty), late 19th century
