Dear Deer


This lively painted snuff bottle depicts a winter scene with three small deer walking on a snowy path. The deer is a pun for ‘emolument’ or ‘official salary’. Since it can live for a long time, the deer is one of the symbols of longevity.  The artist, Ma Baoku, was a self-taught artist at first, but later took classes from painter Wang Qian. He was born 1971 in Tangxian County City.
