This bronze Monkey King (Sun WuKong) statue has been very nicely depicted. He holds the "Golden Staff" which makes him invulnerable. He is worshipped popularly for his power to drive away evil and sorcery and to bestow health, protection and success. For these reasons a likeness of the Monkey King is thought to be quite lucky and beneficial to the owner. The mythical story of the Monkey King is fascinating, and has been chronicled in the Chinese story "Journey to the West," which I recommend highly.
Size: 6 1/2" tall.
