This small temple statue is pleasingly carved and colored, depicting a slender figure attired in fine robes of red, green, blue and gold and carrying an offering, the head turned to the right with an inquiring expression, representing a local deity making offerings on behalf of the people. In traditional China, every village had a shrine to the local Earth God, who was in charge the affairs of agricultural or weather-related matters. This god was not all-powerful, but was a modest heavenly official to whom individual villagers could turn in times of need, famine or drought, etc. He typically wears a black hat and a red robe, which signify his position as a bureaucrat.
