He sits on a gold chair with Dragon Head arms. It is very colorfully painted throughout with gold gilt. Hand carved out camphor wood. This is a beautiful piece.
I got him from an Estate Sale and the people told me that he was called a Junk God. He told me that if you had a problem and you wrote it down on a piece of paper and attached it to the back of the statue, the God will take care of it for you.
You can see on the back where it looks like it could have happened. They attached the paper with wax.
Don't know if this is true but definitely makes a good story. Richly detailed, vibrant poly chrome decorated. He even has tassels and green balls.There are green balls missing from his head. There is some cracks and paint loss on a piece of this age. Please look at the pictures as they are part of the description. Measures 10.5" x 5" x 6.
