I am a stunning, intricately carved one-of-a-kind coral branch. I am quite impressive in size — 11.5” tall and 7” wide. And, I’m impressive in beauty, with multiple carvings in the natural salmon pink color of coral. You will find a phoenix, a Manchurian crane symbolizing longevity, a boy on a carp with four playmates, and two graceful ladies at leisure in this lovely, created garden.
As fragile as I am, it is amazing that I have survived these many years and many miles of travel from China to find my home here at last, in the Rear Gallery of The Maridon Museum. Please visit the next time you’re at the museum.
