A highly polished and stained tight grain Huangyang wood corbel, pillar strut or candle holder. Carved in Qing style exhibiting the simplicity of design and pronounce contours for which traditional Chinese carvings are known. Here immersed in the clouds and flying sash is the Taoist Immortal Zhang Guo Lao. He is seen here standing on one foot above a longevity peach, with inlaid eyes and teeth gleaming on a benevolent smiling face, one hand waving joyously, while holding near to his chest is his attribute of a bamboo music instrument. The carving is lively revealing his whimsical character. For he was known to be the most eccentric of all the Eight Immortals. As legend has it, during the Tang dynasty (7th-8th century), the emperor Ming Huang wish to attach him to his court, but Zhang Guo Lao would not give up his wandering life. On the second summons from the court he disappeared on a white mule, then attained immortality into the Taoist Pantheon. See a Matching Pair...
