Chinese scholars and connoisseurs prized the organic form of burl wood and the way it referenced the wonders of the natural world. This 19th scroll container carved from a burl of a rare size can be seen as a frog. Its monumental scale is exceptional and contains a plant or a dozen orchids beautifully.
