Exquisite fine quality carved Chinese figurine, a man presumably a scholar or an elder holding a scroll with a foo dog by his side and what a long tubular object that resembles a snake or a serpent curling from the top to his back and around his neck. It is a deep mottled brown color stone. The detail and workmanship is extremely fine with lots of folds in his robs, a very expressive face and the foo dog is fantastic. Measures 8 inches tall by 4 inches by 2 inches at the base. Has a carved black wood base. Beautiful piece of Oriental art. Very good condition.
