See the Chinese rarity that can sell for millions at auction

The 11th-century auction will be auctioned on Monday. It was written and painted by master Su Shi, one of the most renowned artists in Chinese history.

Wood and Rock is one of the most prestigious works of art ever to come out of China. It is an 11th-century parchment created by Su Shi, an artist who is often compared to Leonardo da Vinci.

This nearly 1,000-year-old work will be auctioned this Monday (November 26) in Hong Kong and may set a new record for Asian art. The drawing shows a parched tree with sprouting bamboo and a stone.

It is estimated that it could sell for about $60 million (€52.9 million) in a Christie's auction in Hong Kong. The parchment contains one of only two drawings known by the Song Dynasty master, who is still a source of inspiration for Chinese artists.
