#13065 Pair of Excellent Ming Dynasty Carved Architectural Fragments

This is a Pair of very nice Ming Dynasty (1384-1644) antique Chinese wooden architectural fragments. At the front, it is well carved with an early style large bird that looks to be a phoenix, with long beak, crown, and extending long wings, and an auspicious Chilin mythical animal, with an interesting pavilion type of building or entrance fitted with four sets of screen doors made with latticework, behind the walking rails of a bridge or a walk way, that are half- open. One also sees a couple of the auspicious clouds adorning the top of the roof. Please also note the sizes of the creatures compared to the building, the bridge, and the entire landscape. This beautifully assembled and created landscape with an array of chosen auspicious objects evoked an idealistic longing for a world of harmony and peace.

Dimensions: 6 1/4"h x 25 1/4"w x 6 1/4"h
