Chinese Qing Dynasty Lapis Lazuli double gourd and stand inlaid with stonework scenery. Smooth, Fine Lapis-Lazuli stone elaborately carved pattern of Fu-bats, with cloud and rolling thunder surrounding the two depictions.

Also depicted, is a figure holding a peach branch burgeoning fruit, with another figure meandering after him amongst cloud form and swooping Fu-bat. Both the Lingzhi fungus and peach resemble immortality to which Daoist's consider them both sacred victuals. Lapis-Lazuli double gourd sits on hand carved wooden pedestal.
