Figure Group

Qianlong Period Circa 1752
Dutch Market
Height: 11 1/2 inches, 29 cm

A rare figure of a bearded demonslayer in a red robe, struggling with four demons, a metal sword held aloft, the tongue articulated, on a green rock moulded base.

The figure is Zhong Kui, a popular Chinese mythological figure, who guards against unwanted demons.

This figure would appear to be part of a series as similar examples are known with one demon and two demons.

This particular model dates to about 1752. A broken example was found in the wreck of the Geldermalsen (sunk 1752) and is now in the Groninger Museum.
