Hand carved from one piece of Suar wood, a hard wood found in Indonesia. This Hotei is the chinese god of prosperity, and is depicted sitting with money in his hand. He wears a necklace of pearls, and ultimately shows his prosperity by his round figure. The piece is finished in two tones, the the robe being stained a darker tone. Please note the crack on the back of his head, resulting in the discounted price. We do not expect the piece to crack further.
