This 18th century architectural object, hand carved out of a single block of white marble, is intricately finished with an all over celestial cloud motif—an ancient and auspicious Buddhist pattern. It may have been designed to stand outside of a Qing Dynasty temple. The top of the interior has a shallow dip, likely intended to support an architectural column. It is appreciated today as a sculptural planter indoors or out.
