An Erotic Chinese Carved and Pierced Ivory Ball on Stand
The central sphere carved with numerous articulated spikes
19th Century

Size: 12cm high – 4¾ ins high
These articulated spiked balls are said to be used by Chinese ladies to excite their erogenous zone. The people of ancient China were fond of making love. They saw it as a way of harmonising the energies of heaven and earth and thus of continuing natures cycle of creation. So love became an art, the art of living the art of untying the bodies knots and an integral part of religion. Thus the Chinese Taoists combined sexual practices with their techniques of meditation.
