You have a lot of great information with this one.

I don't want to make you guys envious, but it IS on my desk, and I look at it every day while working at my home computer!  Cheesy

George, I did quite a bit of research on Shiqing's life before reaching the conclusion that this is a genuine Shoushan stone. It was the artist's preferred material - he was born and brought up in the area were this stone is found. I think Bonham's assumed it was soapstone or serpentine.
