Description

EXCEPTIONAL CELADON AND RUSSET JADE CARVING Qianlong Period
In the form of a mantis and a cicada on two openwork leaves. Fine use of the russet skin area to highlight the leaves. The combination of these two insects can suggest good fortune but can also suggest caution should be taken -- as the mantis stalks the cicada he ignores the bird stalking him. Length 3."

Condition

Undamaged.
