An impressive rosewood carved lamp in the form of Chinese Immortal Shouxing. Likely originally made as a candle stick and later converted to electric.

//

Shouxing, Wade-Giles romanization Shou Hsing, in Chinese mythology, one of three stellar gods known collectively as Fulushou. He was also called Nanji Laoren (“Old Man of the South Pole”). Though greatly revered as the god of longevity (shou), Shouxing has no temples. Instead, birthday parties for elders provide a fitting time for visitors to bow before his statue, which is draped in embroidered silk robes.
