DEIFIED HIGH OFFICIAL
Wood with gilding
China, Qing dynasty (1644-1912)

A decorative sculpture of a deified dignitary from a house altar or a temple, seated in Europan style on a rock throne, wearing a courtly headdress with three wings on the back, clad in a courtly attire and holding a sceptre in an abstracted ruyi form. The latter symbolizing the achievement of ''old age'', the rock representing the ''strength of character'', here both well expressed in the face. The sculpture is entirely gilt and with strong patina due to smoke. Complete, good preservation.
