ANTIQUE 19th century Rhinoceros Horn Carving.
This carving is a gem of Chinese art. Its great value is not only the scarcity of the material, but also the participation of Ming Dynasty scholars (1368 – 1644) in the production, resulting in the blending of techniques and styles with bamboo, wood, metal and jade carvings, which gave rise to a host of innovative themes and designs. Nowadays, the protection has succeeded in lessening the supply of the material making these works of art highly valued among collectors. In China, this traditional carvings have been rare treasures since ancient times. They are used as medicine or carved into objects of high artistic value. Despite numerous textual references, no carvings have yet been unearthed from archaeological excavations. Most of the extant examples date from the Ming and Qing dynasties (1644 – 1911).
