During the 1600s, porcelain sculptures decorated in famille verte overglaze enamel colors were produced for the domestic as well as export market to Europe.


Luohan are disciples of Buddha with supernatural powers and eccentric behaviors. One luohan is holding the peach of longevity (shoutao),the other is holding the fu-dog, symbolizing good luck. With carefree smiles and playful gestures, these two figures embody a humorous attitude and a detachment from worldly affairs. This pair of porcelain figures was perhaps part of a house altar set or a decorative item in a household.
