Shown here is an intricately carved wood dragon. This is a beautiful example of Asian art. The workmanship was done on a large diameter section of Bamboo.
The carving measures 26.5 inches long and approximately 5 to 5.5 inches in diameter. Sitting on the half slice of bamboo for a base stand, the top edge of horizontal piece is 10 inches off the table.
Purchases such as this are difficult to find for retail in specialty shops or Antique Shops. Finding one for retail requires exploring many upper scale Estate Sales, or finding a motivated collector or decorator willing to part with such and unusual piece of art.
