A rare, very well patinated, hardwood carving, with silver wire inlay, depicting the twin Daoist Immortals of Unity and Harmony - the Hehe Erxian. One is holding a lotus leaf and bud; the other holds a bat. This item was made, circa 1780-1820, during the reign of either the Qianlong or Jiaqing emperor. For a very similarly carved and decorated group of six of the Eight Daoist Immortals please view those in the collection of the Field Museum, Chicago (illustrated on page 115 in "The Arts of China after 1620" by William Watson & Chuimei Ho, published in 2007 by the Yale University Press, ISBN 0-300-073933). For many additional pictures please view #1026 in our Liverpool shop website at 69aliverpool.co.uk Condition: excellent - there are very minor chips to the front corners of the base; no further damages and no repairs or restoration. 46cm (18 inches) high; 21.5cm (8.5 inches) wide.
