A natural elm (?) root stand of irregular twisting gnarled shape. The body of this stand seems to twist and swirl with multiple openings created by the natural root form, it narrows towards the base before spreading with two 'feet' at an angle balancing the non-centred top, and with two feet straight down. The beautifully figured elm top appears to be part of the natural form but must be inset although there is no obvious join.

Japanese, Edo period.

Provenance:

Axel Michels, Kyoto

Private collection, San Francisco
