Donated by the Fok Ying Tung Foundation
The Gambler is a Shiwan ceramic sculpture with white kaolinite and Shiwan silt. This Shiwan figurine is seated behind high stack of chips, hosting a big grin on his face. His overjoyed expression indicates that this dice roller is having a good day.
Fine details, such as the garment floats freely behind him, in tandem with a vivid expression, illustrate the best in craftsmanship.
