A very large and extravagant Chinese jade carving of a dragon carrying the Eight Immortals on his back. Each Immortal is seated holding their individual attributes, and is surrounded by auspicious elements such as lotus pods, peaches, mushrooms, and flowers. Large fruit are carved along the dragon's neck such as a pomegranate and a buddha's hand citron. The body of the dragon is a deep, spinach green fading into lighter green towards the head, and the carved Immortals along its backside are a beautiful white with splashes of bright apple green. Very heavy and solid. Size: 25" height, 29" length, 10" depth
