A rare and large rhinoceros horn 'rocky landscape' libation cup 17th centuryThe deeply carved vessel of flared form, the well-delineated rim above angular rocky outcrops, partly obscured by ruyi-shaped cloud scrolls, with a lone sage seated on the graduated stepped ground by a swirling stream with its source at the base and flowing around the cup, amongst wutong and cypress trees, all below two large pine forming the handle with further gnarled branches and pine-needles emerging through the interior in high relief, the horn of dark chocolate-brown tone. 17.6cm (6 7/8in) long Footnotes 十七世紀 犀角雕山水松崖人物杯Provenance:An important European private collection來源:重要歐洲私收藏The current composition of a lone scholar gazing into the distant landscape embodies the ideals of scholarly reclusion, popular with the 17th century literati.
