This is a fascinating sculpture that can really get your imagination working overtime. There is a double gourd vase with steam rising from it and a bat in the steam, perhaps having been conjured up? The elderly man walking with the help of a cane is actually winking! The lady who sits with a fan is looking up at the bat. In Chinese mythology, the palm fan represents authority, so I suspect she has controlled the emergence of the bat. I am not sure if this is Chinese or not, but it definitely is Asian.

Size: Approx 7" wide; 3" deep; and 8.5" tall.

Condition: There is some loss of gilding. Some age cracks. Expected wear. Still Good to Very Good Condition.

Item ID: A5926
