#1662 Carved Stone Architectural Plaque

Rare motif of a playful Chilin teased by magpies under a pomegranate tree. Chilin is a mythical animal composed of half dragon/fu-lion and half horse. It represents acceleration and endurance. Magpies represent spring and wishful events. Pomegranate is a fertility symbol, open with seeds, showing generations to come. Since January 2000, antique stone items have been more difficult to obtain due to China's effort in salvage what's available domestically and the abundant rising museums seeking for stock. Please inquire Shen's over 20 year's lifetime collections in ancient Chinese stone architectural fragments.
