£52.49 + VAT
Hand Carved Bamboo Root Figurine
Made from hand carved bamboo root, this carefully crafted statue features a smiling old man holding a big fish. This is a famous Chinese character known as Jiang Taigong. He was, as legend has it, a nobleman who helped advise the Kings who went on to form the Zhou dynasty. His hat, beard and clothing are given extra texture with the special shredding technique used by the Chinese craftspeople.
Tips for installing outside: To keep the colour, detail and finish of this carving when using outside we recommend the use of a clear wood preservative. Varnish or wood stain can be used in the future to further enhance and preserve the bamboo.
