19th Century White jade finely carved as a standing boy with a jovial expression, his both hands carrying a stalk bearing a large lotus blossom and leaf. It represents a homonymous form, playing on images and words, together express in a rebus the wish, ‘the birth of succession sons after another, ‘Lian Sheng Gui Zi’ 连生贵子. Because the lotus also contains many seeds, it does double duty in meaning ‘progeny’ as well as ‘in succession’.
