Vintage Carved Soap Stone Scarab Chinese sealVintage Carved Soap Stone Scarab Chinese seal

This Chop is made of soap stone and measures approx. 1 1/2" tall and
3 1/2" by 2 1/4". It is carved in the general shape of a Scarab or Beetle, with a head of a water buffalo. This is an Egyptian influence, with an oriental addition. The scarab stone in Egypt was used as a seal, to show ownership, and the oriental "chop" (the information carved on the bottom) shows ownership of artwork. The Egyptian scarab was also used as a heart stone, placed on the heart of a mummy. This combination/influence of the two cultures is fascinating, and this piece in your collection will bring on many conversations. It does have a few nicks on the face. I will combine orders for shipping savings. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions,and thank you for shopping here at Something Wonderful.
