This Antique Censer with Six Taoist Patriarchs perched around the body of the censer is highly detailed with five Taoist Buddhist figures in relief strategically placed around the outside of the burner, and one figure on the lid seated at the feet of a Phoenix with wings spread and two dragons snaking their way down the side of the burner. Plum blossoms (prunus) and foliage are dispersed between the figures.
