This figure, dating from the Ming dynasty, is modelled in hollow bronze. It depicts Luohan, one of the disciples of Buddha, who are frequently depicted with a prominent bump on the forehead. He holds a leaf in his left hand while his right hand is raised. The folds of his robe are skillfully sculpted with a finely incised, patterned trim. Taoist thought emphasized the importance of spontaneity, open-mindedness and a disregard for social norms and worldly aspirations.
