18TH C WATER BUFFALO & QILING JADE SCULPTURE ON STAND
Item Details
Description
Fine Chinese Nephrite jade carved resembling a water buffalo resting in relaxed position, while head facing left shoulder, the tail curved encircling upward resting on left hip. A Qiling mythical beast cuddled in opposite position with stylized ruyi clouds fumes breath flows from its mouth opening, spreading over the oxen hip. The Jade shows grayish-pale-celadon color, with dark-brown-russet sporadic inclusions along the surface. The sculpture displayed moist milky appearance, with clean iridescent. Displayed upon a carved hardwood stand.

In Chinese symbols, the ox is one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac.
A charm with the inscription in Daoist magic writing, displaying an ox and a star god (star official), may be seen at Daoist (Taoist) Charms.
A charm showing a boy riding an ox which represents the early humble beginnings of Emperor Tai Zu of the Ming Dynasty may be seen at Chinese Charms with Coin Inscriptions.
Because of their importance to agriculture, the water buffalo or ox (niu) symbolizes springtime, harvest and fertility.
To city dwellers and government officials, the water buffalo also represents a simple and idyllic life.
