WOW! This is an amazing miniature from Russell. From a photograph, it could pass as a large jar because everything is so perfectly made to scale. Under two inches – it is so representative of the high-quality execution of traditional work. Entirely Red polished, it is so refined. Even the opening on the neck is fantastic. Called a “raindrop rim” it is an impressed scallop design. The body of the jar shows an avanyu (water serpent) with a turquoise eye. Russell has embedded tiny strands of hematite Heishi beads at the bottom of the neck and below the avanyu. He has also carved his trademark dots as a border above and below the design work. Perfect for anybody’s miniature collection…all done in the traditional way.
