Rob chose this exquisite Chinese Figural Roof tile depicting a Warrior riding a Carp for the May 2019 Staff Picks Newsletter. “This roof tile is used to signify wealth and good fortune and to ward off evil spirits. It was used by Mary Kay West, one of our artists, in her painting Still Life with Chinese Roof Tile, Flower Vase and Red Headed Tanager which was displayed in our store during our the first of our Summer Art Series shows.”
