ITEM#: 16446093

This unique soapstone chi ball is an ancient form of carving from China. Sometimes called puzzle balls or mystery balls, they have an intertwined dragon and phoenix carved outside and four layers inside - each layer inside is completely detached and moveable. The four layers signify the four directions or elements of earth. The dragon and phoenix represent our male/female energies showing our ability to master earthly events and situations.

Story Behind the Art:
This handcrafted item and many others come from a third generation family-run workshop in mainland China. Their skills of hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering, and hand-tooling have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. Many of the artists are hired out of semi-retirement to work from home training the next generation to become master craftsmen. These masters are highly respected in their craft and their culture which have survived through many Chinese dynasties and continue to produce valuable and desirable pieces for your home decor.

    This is a nice stool but is more heavily antiqued than shown in the photo. It has almost a brown, dirty look to it in certain places--much darker than the subtle look in the picture. I love it and it's a good quality and price (with sale coupon) but wish it weren't so dark. I can see why it was on sale. Because of the color, I ended up putting it in a different location than originally intended. As long as you don't mind this and aren't looking for a pure white or barely off-white, lightly antiqued garden stool, this is a great purchase.

    I'm returning this item. The background color is a medium gray with brown glaze in certain parts. Not blue and white, as I had expected.

    I bought it as a bedside table. The surface is not very large but it works well to put down a book, phone or a glass of water. I love it, pretty design, it's exactly what I was hoping for. The color is grey/navy, it's not white.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Is it blue and white as pictured? The one review claims it is grey with brown glaze in parts."

    • A:

      We try our best to represent products accurately, however, due to differences in displays and the subjective nature of colors, shades may vary slightly. Due to the hand-crafted nature of this product, slight variations are to be expected.

  • Q:

    "Ladies blue and white garden stool is on other Web sites and advertised as indoor only. I am interested in this stool but would only want it for outdoor use year round. I have other blue and white Chinese porcelain stools that we keep outdoors in all weather. Please clarify whether it can be kept outdoors in cold winter weather. We live in New York where temps may reach down to very low degrees"

    • A:

      This stool is designed for indoor use only.

  • Q:

    "Why did you choose this product?"

    • A:

      Because it goes with the other Chinese porcelain items that I own.

  • Q:

    "Is the top of this stool flat or is it bowed slightly?"

    • A:

      Hello Marea, the top is flat. Thank you for shopping with us.
