No idol in China is more universally worshipped than Ts’ai Shen Yeh, the God of Wealth. His shrine is to be found in nearly every home, his temples are very numerous, and high and low are always ready to burn a stick of incense before him. The seated figure is youthful Dharmapala, wearing a elaborate dragon robe, striding triumphantly on the backs of two guardian lions. Despite the minor wear due to its age, the little carving is radiate with potent energy and determination, a testament to a century of prayers and worship.

Exquisitely carved from a single block of camphor wood, using an unique Chinese formula of gesso and saw-dust mixture, the statue is meticulously detailed with ultra fine embossed motifs, and ornamental jewel chains that festoon the edges of her robes. The application of lacquer; completed with layers of and polychrome and gold leaf finishing created an effect reminiscent of gilded bronze sculpture. Such elaborate design is the hallmark of the Daoist influence in the Qing eras (1644-1911 A.D.).
