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 done with what appears to be a form of brown paper. 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.
