Lot 0456 Details

Description
A Monumental Pair of Chinese Jadeite 'Long-Life' Crane and Pine Groups, 20th c., each reticulated group modeled in mirror image of the other with a crane carved standing on the stump of an old pine tree, between entwined branches carrying a long-life sacred lingzhi fungus in its mouth with a rising sun behind its head, on one branch of the pine crouches a bushy-tailed squirrel, heights 16 in., widths 9 1/2 in., carved wood stands, overall heights 19 in Provenance: New Orleans Colleciton. Note: Depictions of cranes and pine trees together are popular in Chinese art. The crane is considered a top ranking bird and is symbolic of both status and longevity; while the evergreen pine tree represents long life and endurance. The depiction of a crane (he) and a pine (song) together is known as song ling he shou or the wish to "live as long as a pine and crane". The lingzhi fungus furthers the long-life metaphor, as do squirrels - songshu, or literally, "pine tree mice".
