Superbly Carved Chinese Bone Barnyard Happy Chicken Family In Rock Garden Statue For Sale
This is an exquisitely carved ox bone barnyard scene of a happy chicken family, consisting of a proud crowing rooster, a mother hen and newly hatched chicks in a rock garden with many flowers and trees. On the left side amid a lily bush the mother hen is attending to the newly hatched chicks that just hopped out of the egg shells; on the right on top of a large finely carved rock scape the rooster seems to be announcing to the world he's become the proudest father...
This is a finely detailed carving of outstanding workmanship. In the Orient chicken family is a symbol of good luck, prosperity and happiness. Chicken is one of the 12 zodiac animals in Oriental lunar calendar and the Chinese character "chicken" (鸡） is homophone with "auspiciousness （吉）". As a result, Chinese art involving chicken decor is always happy and delightful (this is also the case in the porcelain chicken tureen in our listings) “大吉大利”（literally great luck and prosperity). Indeed, the good meaning associated with chicken seems universal. The rooster signifies early rise and diligence; and the hen and "a nest of eggs" symbolize growth and multiplication. The elegantly carved wooden stand is included. The sculpture also comes with a beautiful original box.
Dimension: approx. 5.4 inches high, 4.9 inches wide and 2 inches deep
