Good Tang Dynasty gray clay brick depicting “Atlas” type figure seated on a lotus blossom I was in Taxila once and saw similar figures which to my mind illustrates the Greco/Roman influence in Tang art. The lotus shows indicates an obvious Buddhist connection. This is painted with “stucco”, and in good condition with no damage. W: 14.5cm/5.8in and H: 17.7cm/7in.

Tang zhenmushou tomb guardian. These were interred in the vault and meant to subdue evil and protect the deceased. This fantastic creature, like the Western Chimera, were composite animals having the stripes and fierce countenance of a tiger and hooves like a deer. Most of the pigments appear to be original, with rare traces of gold applied to the sides of the chest and nose. The “spikes” on the side have been repaired with the probability of more on the body. H: 30cm/11.8in and W: (at ...

Large, circa 18th century Shan Jambupati (royal attire) Buddha, from the Amarapura period (1789-1853). (see last two images for 18CE examples).

This is carved from very heavy wood- most likely teak with relief molded lacquer and (Thayo technique) and glass inlay (Hman-zi Shwei-cha technique). There are probably some old and newer restorations on ...

Good monkey khik, carved from wood, contrary to how I see these often advertised they have little to do with attracting women, but are worn by on the side by men for luck and prosperity. The symbolism goes way back to Hindu mythology where the Shiva lingam represents primordial creative energy and the Monkey God Hanuman embodies courage and devotion. L: 5cm/2in. Unlike the cast metal types, this is a one off item and good example of Thai folk art. Free shipping HK registered Airma...

Quirky “Budai”circa Qing Dynasty, possibly much earlier. This is a high fired pottery molded piece. Stylistically this figure hasn’t changed much since the Song Dynasty so precise dating is difficult. This is an excavated piece as evidenced by traces of soil in the folds of the robe, and has a similar glaze to Jizhou but without the expected craquelure- quite possibly this Shekwan piece emulating a Song glaze. In excellent condition-H: 12.9cm/5in and W: 9.4cm/3.7in.

Tibetan Buddhist “windhorse” woodblock with loads of auspicious symbols (trigrams, dorjes etc) for printing small prayer flags about 40 to 50 years old, still perfectly usable (I’ve thought of making cards with this but never got around to it). The “wind horse” has its origins the earlier Bon folk religion but has been incorporated to Tantric art for the past couple of hundred years. I’ve researched few of interpretations of this symbol, which are quite complex so suf...
