Sage & Fish on Lotus Leaf Base

The wise old man is enjoying the simple things of life. He is lying on a lotus leaf - whose seeds suggest immortality - and he has caught a fish. The fish is frequently used to suggest wealth or abundance. It is also a symbol of both harmony and happiness. Wonderful story in this simple carving. An old man enjoying his life knowing that he has attained immortality, is blessed with wealth, and is supremely happy. Sounds like a good situation.
