The Daoist God: I was recently reread the Chinese ancient fantacy novel of "journey to the West" and I was attracted by the beautiful Daoist robe which is worn by a high priest. So i made thie Daoist God riding a deer. This figure is originated from my childhood TV show "the journey to the west".

1. Ancient Daoist Priest painting

2. Doaist robes of high priests
there are many styles of Daoist robes and patterns. Here is just one of them.

3. Gods in the robes
The one the God is carrying in his hand is call 拂尘( Fu chen, meaning "dust wiper", it is a symbol used by the monks or high priests to "wiper the dust in their mind")
Image
The crown is called 芙蓉冠( Fu Rong Guan,the crown of Lotus.
Image
The back is the famous TaiChi pattern

What a great subject for a figure and excellent in your execution. I love the Priest on a stag with his beautifully painted gown. Nice work
