Current customer rating: (3) based on 19 votes
Unique and interesting carving on dry walnut.The walnut has carvings of 18 Lohans (deciples of buddha) sitting or standing among trees.Consider the size of walnut it is quite incredible to have carvings on it let alone 18 monks in their flowing robes.These kind of carvings were common in China in the old days. There was not enough work for everybody in China in those days so people sat around to do handy work such as carving walnuts. bought these over 30 years ago. Recent trips to China have not been able to find these carved walnuts.On another site similar walnut is priced over four hundred dollars.Height: cm The battery is there for size comparison only. It has nothing to do with the item. I only accept Paypal. have business days shipping policy however if can send earlier will. Thank you.'Most of my collection is one of kind. bought the items because liked it for myself. They were never intended to be resold. Each item has story and when possible hand carried in my luggage from all over the world to bring back to Australia. Some of the items have travelled long way away and some of the items has been with me for 65 years. am now retired and need to downsize. will not be able to buy similar item again and definitely not able to sell it at the same price. If you buy an item from me it most likely is the only one have. Thanks for bidding.'Check out my other items!Be sure to add me to your favourites list!
