Lot Overview

灰白玉質,巧色雕成,溫潤細膩如凝脂。駿馬膘肥體壯,鬃毛披頸,呈跪臥回首之姿,肩上陰線刻琢蜜蜂紋樣。背後身形靈巧小猴緊握馬尾,站於馬上,與馬相對而視,姿態活潑,惹人喜愛,呈現出「馬上封侯」吉祥之美意。
「馬上封侯」是中國傳統吉祥圖案之一,多由馬和猴兩種動物組成。在古代吉語中,常以「猴」諧「侯」,暗指地位較高的官位,「馬上」為立刻之意。《禮記.王制》記載:「王者之制祿爵,公、侯、伯、子、男凡五等。」侯是僅次於「公」的爵位。「馬上封侯」寓意官運亨通、仕途順暢,表達人們對仕途的熱衷。本品完美運用天然巧色,馬以灰白中帶有墨點雕之,白玉巧雕小猴,匠心獨運,刀法簡潔俐落。
玉馬整體肌肉感較強,儼然飽滿盈實,其以極細密的淺陰線表現馬頸部、尾部及猴背部的鬃毛,極為逼真。置於文房案几之上為鎮紙或玩賞,是達官貴族喜愛之文雅佳品。
