Li Tieh-Kuai

Iron-Crutch Li

He is sometimes described as irascible and ill-tempered

but also benevolent to the poor

sick and the needy whose

suffering he alleviates with special medicine from his gourd.

He is often portrayed as an ugly old man with dirty face, scraggy beard, and messy hair held by a golden band.

He walks with the aid of an iron crutch (t'ieh kuai) and often has a gourd slung over his shoulder or held in his hand

who descended to earth in the form of a beggar who uses his power to fight for the oppressed and needy

2 1/2" high and 2 3/8" wide

French trombone clasp

marked

SILVER
