Exceptional and large, this Ebony hand-carved Chinese sculpture is finely detailed and inlaid with brass wire. The figure represents Shou Xing, the Chinese god of longevity, who usually wears long flowing robes with a wispy beard and an elongated, egg-shaped, bald head. He holds a tall knotted staff in one hand and a pumpkin gourd, which holds the water of life, in the other.

The figure is exceptionally hand-carved from one piece of ebony wood which also includes the stand. Chinese carvers were historically renowned for their ability to execute the most precisely carved detail. This sculpture is representative of that talent.

The sculpture is in excellent age appropriate condition with natural age lines in the wood. He is quite heavy and solid; crating is recommended for shipment.

Size: 33" Height.

*All state and federal documentation and certificates required by law for commercial sale, import or export, have been obtained for this item. Proper legal paperwork will be included with it at shipment.
