The group is in a form of two conjoined mushrooms, one on another, with the same stem. The mushrooms are deftly carved in a naturalistic style. The jade with a smooth polish, is veined with black.
In the Chinese tradition, the mushroom is a symbol of longevity. It is associated with daoist immortals. The naturalistic and plain aesthetic of this jade group matches perfectly with the scholar’s tastes.This group could have been used as a scroll weight or a scholar contemplation object.
