The domes cover is carved with a central medallion of an elderly Scholar with a mythical beast under plantain, circled by a scroll of confronting phoenixes amidst foliage and cloud, with the sides decorated with cartouche of figural scenes surrounded by dense floral sprays with an inverted lappets band. The box was first molded with clay and then coated with lacquered linen, when the figure was parched, a hole is drilled at the bottom of the mold and then immersed into water to dissolve the clay body. Then polish the hardened fabric and coat it with layers of lacquer to make bodiless lacquer statute.
