GJPaw salesis pleased to bring to a RARE OFFERING of African Art & Cultural Artifacts from the estate of a well-known Chicago collector.

GJPaw salesis very pleased to offer A Standing White Hardstone Figure of The Immortal ShouLao Holding a Deer & Peach. Thestatuemost likely dates to thelast half of the 20thcentury, although it may be considerably older, and measures 8.5 inches tall (10.25 inches with stand) and weighs 3.5 lbs. The statue shows ShouLao, the deity of long life, in his old age holding two important symbols of longevity - the peach and the deer. Both known fortheir association with immortality, the deer especially, was believed to live to a great age and known to be one of the few animals capable of finding the "ling-chih" - the fungus of immortality. The surface of the statue is well carved and polished. A beautiful wispy cloud matrix can be seen in the stone. The statue is in great condition, with the only issue I could find being a very small edge missing to the back of the robe. It is most likely carved of Hanbai Yu stone, commonly known as "white jade." This is a great piece for both the Chinese art collector and the Jade collector, as it is sure to bring beauty to your collection and grow in value over time. It is, in short, a beautiful, sensitive carving.
