Ginseng Root Art

Larger-than-life-sized statue depicting a Chinese immortal, bearing the symbolic peach of longevity, and constructed entirely of ginseng roots! Red and white roots give the appearance of robes, while the Sage’s skin and forehead are made of pressed ginseng cortex. The beard is formed from rootlets of white ginseng, and  fingernails, too, are made from ginseng.
