Chinese Malachite figure of Li Tiegual Immortal
A beautiful piece of deep green malachite has been carved by a master Chinese artist. The pattern in the stone is matched to the details of the Immortal Li Tiegual. The medicine gourd with vapors, the bats, the crutch are all the symbols you look for in this well loved Immortal. The stand carved for the piece has metal wire inlay, an indication of the age. This piece is 4" tall, on the stand it is almost 5" tall. One of the best, most detailed carvings I have seen. It was carved in the first quarter of the 20th Century.
