This is a depiction of Zhu Bajie from the 16th century novel ‘Journey to the West”.
He was the Commander-in-chief of 80,000 Heavenly Navy Soldiers.
His main hobby was said to be ‘seducing women’ although couldn’t imagine him
very successful with that face!!! His weapon was the nine toothed rake – handle
appears to have been broken off on this statue.
Made of composite material and hand painted.
Signature plaque inside base of statue.
Other than the rake handle it is in very good condition.
Height: 24cm x Width: 22cm
