Lapis Lazuli Carving of Lady of the Court and Handmaiden, Chinese origin. This charming lady of the court is admiring her reflection in her hand mirror while, behind her, her handmaiden steadies a floor mirror. You can see golden flecks in the rich blue lapis, particularly in the floor mirror. The rear of the sculpture shows off the lady's intricately carved hair, tasseled belts and long robes. There are also open areas to add to the detail and reality of the piece.
The level of detail in the carving is not readily available in modern works--hard stone carving is nearly a lost art. The carving is 7.75" high, and 6" at the widest, with the stand about 1 high.
