Set of Two 1970s Handmade Chinese Bean Art Sculptures
A set of two creatively detailed dioramas that use beans fashioned into artistic scenery. Hand crafted and hand painted in China, circa 1970s, more widely known as 'Yang Jing Bean Sculptures'. Both boxes are finished with a special silk-like fabric. The viewable display portion is sealed in cellophane, and the inner lids have information in both Chinese and English about the product. Each tells a different scene depicting a picture of cultural life. NOTE: Although vintage, it is not known if these are true 'Yang Jing' works or anther artist. Each measures 4¾" x 3¼" x ¾".
CONDITION: Some slight wear to the boxes (one is missing the paper 'stand' at the back). Cellophane is intact and not punctured. NOTE: In one, a tiny bean has come loose.
