A very rare white jade carving of a boy flying above clouds and holding Ruyi flower above him. The carving was from Yuan-Ming period. The boy's face is delicately engraved in a fine low relief, giving him broadened features and wide, bulging cheeks. His hair is tied with ribbons in very well engraved bunches.
