Unusual stone carving of the Dharmapala- Mahakala manifested as Gugyi Gompo- the protector of the tent. This piece was sourced in Qinghai Province (formerly known as Amdo), China about 20 years ago and is circa 18th to 19th Century, but most likely is of Nepali origin. H: 16cm/6.5in and W: 7.8cm/3.1in (not including stand). There are remnants of a “peg” carved beneath the plinth indicating this was part of a temple ensemble rather then a personal votive image.

Rare 4.9cm/1.9in Thai stoneware bowl from the Sankampaeng kiln circa 15th/16th CE with two fish in the center and scalloped cavetto, there is well done repaired chip on the inner rim noted last enlargement. This is a classic and definitive piece for the Sankampaeng kiln as the incised/impressed fish motif is only found on ceramics from this Thai kiln. There are some blue flambé highlights in the center, probably accidental but quite attractive. D: 21.5cm/8.2in and H: 5cm/2in.

Stunning wooden statue of a court official or Taoist deity circa Ming Dynasty. He has a fierce countenance and although small has an imposing presence. Please examine images carefully; this has some fire damage as well as damage to arms. There is some compacted soil under the legs as well as having an unusually light weight which leads me to think this an excavated piece. There are traces of white gesso primer as well as small areas of green and red original pigment...
