Based on a Chinese story
The main point to the fable was the King Monkey tricked the horse and he rode the horse all the way back to the palace.

Decorated on the clothes of monkeys and the horse:
peach fruit - long life, association of immortality, divine fruit of gods
The peach of immortality in Chinese mythology can make people perpetually young.

The Chinese animal symbol Butterfly represents love, specifically young love. Happily flitting from flower to flower – it signifies a happy social life for the young and young- at-heart. Chinese legend has it that the Butterfly symbolizes an undying bond between lovers. All romantics-at-heart would do well to place an image of a Butterfly in their home. A perfect gift for a new couple is this design embroidered on towels for the couple's home.

Very nice statue and at 10" high 12" long 6" wide is a good sized piece very heavy but hollow has vent hole. It was hand glazed. I have done a lot of cleaning but it is still dirty in hard to reach spots it was covered in grime! By the design and colors this was done in the 1940-early 1950's. Was probably placed in a child's room for success and love.
