A large carved and pieced coral figural group
Several sprigs of coral incised and assembled to depict the mischievous monkey Sun Wukong in a cave clutching a peach branch and peering above him to see the Three Stars of Happiness and two boy attendants standing atop a wide horizontal plinth amid churning clouds between two gnarled pine trees planted at either end, all supported by an intricately reticulated wood stand of prunus blossoms and lingzhi fungi (numerous elements restuck and restored).
18in (46cm) high including stand
