Description
A FINELY CARVED WHITE JADE 'BOY WITH LOTUS'
SONG DYNASTY (960-1279)

L 6.7 cm (2 5/8 in)

Reference: A back bow, which is supposed to be part of a good luck charm, is seen on the boy of this lot. Good luck charms are sometimes seen on the outfits of the children of the Song dynasty. Refer to CHANG CHUN BAI ZI TU (One Hundred Boys), by Su Hanchen, the Northern Song dynasty, kept in the National Palace Museum, Taipei

ESTIMATE: HKD 50,000 / RMB 44,000


白玉巧雕「童子持蓮」

長 6.7 cm(2 5/8 in)

參考:此持蓮童子背有結帶,疑為偶見於宋代兒童身上的吉祥佩飾的一部分,名畫《長春百子圖》就見小孩背掛吉祥佩飾,參看蘇漢臣《長春百子圖》,北宋,現藏台北國立故宮博物院

估價:HKD 50,000 / RMB 44,000

白玉質,帶褐沁及黑皮。圓雕一個持蓮童子,童子微微抬頭,展露笑臉,雙手抱蓮,兩腳靠攏,作站立姿。童子穿窄袖長袍,束腰帶,背有一結帶,宋代服飾研究者傅伯星提及偶有宋代兒童掛吉祥物於衣上,北宋名畫《長春百子圖》中就見有小孩背掛這種佩飾,推斷本品的結帶為這種佩飾的一部分。童子的頭腳比例相當,是同代玉童子的典型工藝風格,另童子的兩足頗細,有可能是纏足,傅伯星先生亦指出纏足自北宋起漸變普及,玉工欲透過童子反映這種時代風俗,不無道理。童子所持之蓮長出蓮花,亦生有一橢圓形的大葉,剛好遮蓋童子頭部,形似一傘,頗具意趣,玉工特意利用籽料的黑皮雕之,效果搶眼,亦富匠心。
