Zixiu's carving style is recognisable by the meticulous execution of the facial expressions of his sculptures, the detailed carving of facial hair and the use of pearls and pale turquoise glass beads for decoration. Another luohan by Zixiu was sold in these rooms, 30th October 2000, lot 2209 and again, 8th October 2010, lot 2209, from the Water, Pine and Stone Retreat collection. For further examples of his work see a seated figure of a luohan sold in our London rooms, 13th May 2009, lot 9, together with a seated figure of Budai also bearing Zixiu's signature, lot 17.
