This piece portrays Ximen Qing, the cunning, greedy and lecherous protagonist in the ancient Chinese novel Jin Ping Mei, or The Golden Lotus. In order to show the indecency and absurdity of this character in both shaping and coloring, the artisan applied to him a typical look of jesters, a white spot on the tip of nose, a green hat, a green jacket and red trousers.
