Two Antique hand carved Chinese sage, deities or immortal figures. Beautifully detailed and each carved from a single piece of wood with exceptional skill.
There are two figures - figure ‘A’ is brown in colour and depicts a stout male character carrying what appears to be a dragon or a costume mask over his shoulder with one foot raised on a wooden stump.
Figure ‘B’ is slightly taller and has a reddish colour finish. It depicts a tall thin male who is carrying two fish, whilst another jumps from the water - at his feet is a bird, possibly a cormorant. Figure ‘A’ has an empty rounded recess on top of the piece - perhaps for a candle or a missing piece?
Price shown is per figure - to be sold separately.
Note: the teeth and eyes on both figures - though this is permitted on figures of this age.
