Tekkai was a well built, tall and graceful Taoist master. His brilliance and abilities were acknowledged by the the immortal Lao-Tse, who summoned him to heaven for lessons, for which Tekkai was given the ability to exhale his soul that it might travel without the encumbrance of his body. After a journey he returned to find his body had been eaten by a tiger. Seeing the fresh corpse of a crippled beggar by the road, Tekkai entered that body and lived out his life in it, cheerfully limping along with the aid of a staff upon which he is seen resting his foot. This well carved depiction of Tekkai is seen here in his characteristic stance with staff and gourd, watchful with coral inlaid eyes and joyous countenance. Despite the extreme narrowing of the design at the bottom, the piece is perfectly balanced and able to stand on its own. Signed Hisho inside an oval mother-of-pearl reserve. In very good condition.
