The tripod shape of this finely crafted bronze incense burner is a classical form first appearing in Chinese ceramics and bronzes thousands of years ago. The bronze casting of this burner is exquisite: The monkey and mythical qilin on the surface are incredibly detailed. Incense has been a part of Chinese culture for centuries and was considered to be an indicator of refined taste.
