A delightful banded agate stone carving of a seated monkey holding a peach. In China the peach is a symbol of longevity.

"The craving of a person given to heedless living grows like a creeper. Like the monkey seeking fruits in the forest, he leaps from life to life tasting the fruits of his kamma."
