The Chinese Statue follows the technique of a parallel story meaning having a story within a story. The ‘story’ within the main story tells the readers how the statue found its way to the auction room. The main story occurs at London, in the present time where Alex is a gambler, whiling away his time and wealth and as a final resort to save himself, sold his family heirloom which is the statue. The narrator is an omniscient one, present in all perspectives, telling the story of how the statue is acquired and found its way to the auction room where it is kept at the present.
