An ivory sculpture of a Shoulao with polychrome painting

The figure consists of two parts that are stuck together: the Shoulao and a flag hold in his hand. The Shoulao is standing straight and looking forward. In his left hand he is holding a long scepter next to his body and in his right hand he is holding a flag almost in 90 degrees to his body axe. The Shoulao has friendly features with small eyes, a wide nose, long ears and a beard almost reaching his belly. He is wearing a long rope decorated with an ornamental border. The image has interesting details such as his oblong forehead which is almost 2 times as long as his face. The rest of his body proportions are quiet realistic. The basic material of the image is beige and painted with brown, blue, red and copper.
