Summary:
Four Chinese mythological figures atop a rocky outcropping. The Buddhist monk is the central figure of the sculpture and is on horseback. He wears a crown and holds his proper left hand palm up. In front of the horse is the monkey-king stooped down on one leg with his proper right hand shielding his eyes. The bearded river goblin stands on the proper left side of the horse, faces forward and carries a shovel on over his proper right shoulder. The standing, pig figure faces backwards in a walking pose and holds a rake over his proper left shoulder.
