    Very nice, rink. It could be cinnabar coated over a plaster core, instead of carved. Can you see layering on the sides of the carved parts?

    I would guess the whole thing is a resin casting, not a bad quality one though. Here's the mark right side up.

    With @aaroncab here, the gloss and sloppy checkered background is making me think cast rather than carved ...impressive design, would be a killer piece if actual cinnabar lacquer!
