Winding like the Yangtze River, this early 20th-century bench from China's Shanxi province captivates with its asymmetrical form. Tapered legs support a seat carved from a sinuous elmwood branch imbued with graceful movement. Embracing the notion of "wabi sabi," the bench charms with its irregular edges, mottled color, and array of knots, splits, and deep grooves. With a weathered texture and meandering form, this provincial bench exemplifies the raw beauty of the natural world.
