This Magnificent double sided wood block was carved in the shape of the Chinese symbol "Ru Yi". Such a motif is believed to bring blessing and prosperity. At an astounding 6" deep and weighting a whopping 26 lb, the piece is exceptionally heavy and substantial.  A piece of this caliber would have been used as a finial to a column or in between beam and supporting structures to adorn a very wealthy, important family's home. Wonderful weathered patina further enhance its rustic charm. Solid one-piece wood. All original. Block 31" w x 14.5" h x 6" d. Removable peg : 2" w x 6" h x 2" d
