Magnificent floral, cloud-like ruyi—abstracts of a Chinese mushroom—dominate the sides of this ironwood waterfall table. Ironwood, a naturally rich, deep brown color, is named for its heft and strength. Ruyi have been revered as Chinese symbols of knowledge and authority for thousands of years. Delicately carved dragon spandrels support the table's solid top and a gentle scroll finishes each side. A table of this proportion was likely used by a scholar for viewing or creating scroll paintings.
