Chinese Intricately Carved and Pierced Soapstone Sculpture

This impressive Chinese soapstone carving depicts a grapevine bearing fruit and two little foraging critters among the vines.  Intricately carved and pierced in great detail into soapstone of a warm yellow hue subtly accented by rouge veining.
