In very good condition

A finely carved netsuke, measuring 44 x 29 x 22mm, depicting the monkey demigod Sun Wukong in a hand. According to Chinese folklore the monkey king Sun Wukong reaped havoc in the heavenly kingdom, in reaction to this the Jade Emperor and the authorities of Heaven appeal to Buddha. Upon his arrival, Buddha wagers Sun Wukong that he can't escape his hand, the monkey king accepts the bet and leaps nimbly and flies to the end of the world where he encounters five pillars, as he can not see anything else he believes he reached the ends of Heaven. In order to mark his territory he urinates upon the pillars, after doing so he leaps back into the Buddhas hand and is surprised to find out that the pillars were in fact Buddha's fingers. At this point Buddha turns his hand into a mountain and before Sun Wukong can escape Buddha seals him within his prison using a paper talisman bearing the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum. The monkey demigod remains imprisoned for 500 years.
