1982.014 Figurine Three figures, carved from a hard yellow-colored material ressembling ivory; a male military or court person, a female musician, and a sage. Each figure is molded and carved from a hard plastic material which is white (see chips) and has been coated with a yellow color to make it look like aged ivory. The bottom of each figure is textured with fine parallel lines. The surfaces are carved to look slightly pitted and striated in places, to lend an organic appearance (of bone or ivory). A dark brown stain enhances detail and adds to the appearance of age. The figures may represent Immortals or other deities. A: Male figure with spear in left hand and reliquary or portable shrine in the right. The man wears a short cloth hood with a V-cut at center in the back. His garments consist of a long robe with cloud motifs, a wide sash covered with a cross-hatched pattern, a narrow belt, pants and boots. The bottom hem and middle front of the robe, and the edges of the wide sash, are trimmed with a band that has a sort of intertwined zig-zag pattern. Outlining the man is a length of flowing ribbon which arches over him from the bottom of one foot, over his head, and down to the other foot. B: Female figure with musical instrument. She holds the neck of a four-stringed instrument with her left hand and a large pick in her right. Her hair is piled in a high, three section bun which protrudes through the top of a hat she wears. Her robes are long and have the same cloud motif and zig-zag trimming that the male figure (A) above shares. Also outlining the woman is a length of flowing ribbon which arches over her in a similar manner to that of the above figure (A). On the lower back portion of the robe is a design (or writing?) carved into an oval shape. Missing from the front, lower portion of the robes are pieces carved to form thin ribbons which hang from a belt or sash and which have broken near the middle section. C: Male figure with fly whisk. The man is wearing the robes of a sage or hermit, with front pulled open to reveal a large belly and chest. His hair is tied in two knots, one on each side of the head. His hair has been parted down the center; he has a long beard and moustache. The fly whisk is attached to a fan-shaped body and may be either a Buddhist or Taoist symbol. The carving style of this figure, as well as the color of the plastic material, differs somewhat from figures A and B. A and B clearly belong to the same set. It is less clear that this figure is a part of the same group, although the striations on the bottom of the figure are the same.
1982.015 Hanging Painted wood panel with enameled and carved shell figure: a woman carrying a wrapped sword in T'ang dynasty style clothing. The single piece wood placque is entirely painted black. On the front a double border of gold lines trims the placque. Framing the figure is another border of gold and white paint, a thick line is trimed with an S-scroll design. The figure is set in an outdoor scene, painted in the same gold color, consisting of a tall bamboo, a gnarled trunk, a low bamboo fence, and some rocks and grasses. The figure is in medium relief. Her head, sash, hand, and sword covering are in a material which resembles ivory; her skirt is carved from a pale to dark greem material similar to jade, the long ribbon sash is a yellow enamel decorated with blue paint; here top robe is a mottled purple and gray; an apron (?) is carved from a shell similar to mother-of-pearl. The clothing of the figure is embellished by painted designs in plant motifs. The womans hair is painted black and there is a red flower or decoration in it. On the back at the center top, two holes have been drilled into the panel for hanging purposes.
