Excellent antique root wood burl carving of Dao God Shou Lao.
In good condition with only minor signs of wear.
Shouxing (also known as Shoulao) is the god of longevity, one of three star gods in Chinese beliefs. His most recognisable feature is his pronounced bald head and long beard, and he carries the ‘peach of immortality’. Statues of Shouxing are popular birthday gifts for elders.
