The subject is the Bodhidarma (Damo in China, Daruma in Japan) meditating on the back of a rhino. Alibaba is prepared to send one to you express:
FYI, The visage of almost every important individual in China has been well-defined over the centuries, mythical and historical alike. Damo, for instance, is the historical disciple of the Sakyamuni Buddha, who came to China from India in the 5th or 6th century and founded the meditational sect of Buddhism known as Chan in China and Zen in Japan. Being Indian, his image has evolved as a swarthy bearded figure with non-Chinese round eyes, as seen in the scroll below.
