Very good condition

An exquisite quality boxwood panel with stand depicting a scene from the Legend of the White Snake, One of China's four legendary folk stories.

This scene is depicting the flooding of the Jinshan temple as discribed: After coming back to life, Xu Xian still maintains his love for Bai Suzhen despite knowing her true identity. Fahai tries to separate them again by capturing Xu Xian and imprisoning him in Jinshan Temple (金山寺). Bai Suzhen and Xiaoqing fight with Fahai to rescue Xu Xian. Bai uses her powers to flood the temple and drowns many innocent people. However, her powers are limited because she is already pregnant with Xu Xian's child, so she fails to save her husband. Xu Xian later manages to escape from Jinshan Temple and reunite with his wife in Hangzhou, where Bai Suzhen gives birth to their son, Xu Mengjiao. Fahai tracks them down, defeats Bai Suzhen and imprisons her in Leifeng Pagoda. Xiaoqing flees, vowing vengeance.

China circa 1840-1860

Provenance: Private Dutch collection

Condition: Perfect, the stand has been glued in the past, but no damage (see photo's for discription)

Dimensions: 9.5 x 9 x 4.5cm

This item will be shipped priority and professionally packed,
