This Antique Bronze Censer Six Taoist patriarchs is highly detailed with five Taoist Buddhist figures in relief strategically placed around the outside of the burner,  and one figure on the lid, seated at the feet of a Phoenix with wings spread. Two dragons snake their way down on each side of the burner. Plum blossoms (prunus) and foliage are dispersed between the figures.

The most well-known of the Patriarchs, Hung Neng (Liu Tsu) is seated with one leg bent, wearing a crown with a mark on the front of the body with two Chinese letters “Da Wang” which translates into English, meaning King, Magnate or person having expert skill in something.
