Belt ornament

Gansu Province, China. 19th century

Wood. 10cm in length

The belt ornament is in the form of a monkey perched upon a ru yee form. The ru yee is a symbol of well-being in Chinese culture, and resembles a funghi in its form. The morphing of the ru yee with the monkey is intriguing, and unusual.
