This is an outstanding piece of oriental artwork made of very finely carved soap stone. It has been made into a nicely designed inlaid very large wall plaque/picture which measures about 23" wide by about 27" tall. The soap stone has been placed on a highly lacquered board that has some age cracks in it and it probably comes from the first half of the 20th century, It is very fine quality carved soapstone inlay with very nice details of faces, clothing, animals, etc. There does not seem to be missing any pieces but there is a few minor nicks around the outer edges of the frame but nothing to be concerned with. The framing and background of the picture is detailed in gold which is very nice. Overall this is an excellent piece of art. A LARGE piece of art.
