    Yin Tac

    Here is a Chinese yin tac stone, looks like a landscape scene to me, I have heard this type of stone is no good for display but it works for me. I carved and finished a dai for it, one pic is where it was freshly oiled to really make the black&white colors pop. The close up shot is one...
