C1880 - a Chinese beech wood carving. Literally a mountain of evrything beneficial to health wealth and happiness. From the base we see the father of Taoism - Loaxi - nurture, wisdom, caring and guidance - with a child and holding aloft a part of his text. Beside this text is a scholar representing application, study, culture and success in career and wealth. Above the calligraphy panel we find Shou - The toaist immortal representing Longevity and he is holding an enormous peach - another symbol of longevity. So in short it is a carving wishing the recipient the very best of everything in life. £660.00
