Seated monkey

Chiseled wood sculpture representing a seated monkey holding peaches of longevity in his hands.
The figure of the monkey with longevity peaches is a popular image in China, however this subject was also widely used by the Japanese.
According to the legend the monkey Sun, king of monkeys, upset that he was not invited to the banquet of the Queen Mother, entered the garden of the goddess Xiwangmu in the mountains of Kun Lun and ate all the heavenly peaches she grew there. He became immortal.
