Vase of three autumns

Qing Dynasty | China | Turquoise

This is a piece of complete turquoise, extraordinarily sculpted. The graceful branches and leaves covering the vase bursts with vitality, symbolising the peaceful years. Three lively autumn worms represent “three autumns.” The enthusiasm, patience and imagination of Chinese culture's depiction of nature can be observed in this lively work of art.
