    This figure is not Cai Shen. The two Chinese characters in picture 3 translate Fu Star.

    You can find out more about Fu Star here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fu_Lu_Shou

    It is beautiful I was in Port Douglas two days ago & all the Asian ware there is fantastic. They had these blue & white vases that stood about 6 feet tall would look really good in any entrance hall way I thought of you straight away. They also had all these hand carved pieces from wood that were unbelievable. It all blew me away I wish I had the money to pay for some of it. Way out of my price range

    Songwriter53 it's in North Queensland Australia & I'm not at Port Douglas but about 3/4 hours drive from there but the trip up is great it's got about 27 kilometres of coastal road & the views are great. The croc's can stay away though.

    There is a lot of beauty here as most countries for me I'm happy exploring here as I haven't seen anywhere near as much as I would like. Exploring the region I'm in & everyday day even if I look out the window or walk outside I have such beauty all around me I wonder if I took some pictures that they could be posted on site not being vintage or antique if that would help show some of what I say. Not sure either way
