This is a beautiful piece of Chinese art. The shadow box contains a three dimensional outdoor scene with a pagoda, bonsai trees and other shrubs. The scene is very intricately carved out of cork. Two water birds have also been incorporated into the scene. The black lacquered round box is encased in glass on two sides and is 8.5" wide x 1.5" thick. The entire piece with stand is 9" tall. It is removable from the base which is 9" long x 2.5" wide and stands 1.5" tall. This is a vintage piece (pre-1988) in excellent condition and has a sticker that reads "Made in The People's Republic of China, Art No. 21340" along with some words in Chinese.
