I tire not of the Green-Jade Lord in the eastern valley;
the two fenghuang on the Altar of Heaven are heard from time to time.
One peak seems, in the dawn, to pay court to the immortals,
and the green nodes [of its bamboo] lean on the crimson clouds.
A related bamboo wristrest attributed to the early-Qing period is illustrated in Uncanny Ingenuity and Celestial Feats: The Carvings of Ming and Qing Dynasties (Art of Bamboo, Wood and Fruit Stone Carving), Taipei, 2007, pl. 17; another example, simply carved with a plum branch motif, is included in Simon Kwan, Ming and Qing Bamboo, Hong Kong, 2000, pl. 149; and four wristrests of this form, attributed to the Qing dynasty, are published in Ip Yee and Laurence C.S. Tam, Chinese Bamboo Carving, Hong Kong, 1978 and 1982, part 1, pls. 154-157.
