$600.USD 

Mysterious bronze handled knife with iron blade from Cambodia. Very quirky “dragon” handled knife with original bronze sheath bindings, this could possibly be a type of early “meed mor” (Thai magic knife), but to be honest I cannot find any references to this design and style although the pommel has an uncanny resemblance to “Knife with Dragon-Headed Handle, Ordos Type, 14th cent” in the Harvard Art Museum- just google this. A Khmer dating seems logical as this came out of Cambodia ...click for details

~sold~ $800.USD 

Very rare Arakanese Jambupati (royal attire) circa 16th/17th CE, some of the tines on crown have broken off and the bas is a bit compressed from being buried. This was heavily encrusted when I first acquired it and I done my best to clean it uo with destroying the integrity of the piece. I got this from a French collector and Buddhist Art specialist in 2008. H: 18.8cm/7.5in and W: 12cm/4.8in.

~Sold to China, xie xie ni~ $320.USD 

Fine silk embroidered Qing Dynasty dragon robe fragment. I bought this in the Barkor market in front of the Jokang, Lhasa in 1997 and believe this had been repurposed to be the bottom of a Tanka scroll. Lots of Buddhist iconography condition as is (please examine enlargements). L: 62 cm/25in and H: 35cm/14in.

$300.USD 

Good circa 19th CE bronze Buddha from the Shan people in Burma. I found this in Mae Sai, along the Thai/Burmese border in 1998. The style is rather quirky but the face is typically Shan with Burmese gold and black lacquer. There are a few chips to the lacquer otherwise perfect condition. H: 14.7cm/5.9in and W: 5.7cm/2.3in.

Terra Cotta Buddha head and torso from Tov Aimag, Northern Mongolia. This region had an abundance Yellow Hat sect Tibetan temples, most of which were demolished when it became the world’s second Communist country in 1924. Soon after a mass Soviet style pogrom of the Buddhist monastic order was carried out. Taking a page from Uncle Joe's book the Chinese did much the same to the monasteries in Tibet during the Cultural Revolution. This piece is circa 18th CE, I acquired a box of sha ...click for details

~Sold to the U.S., thanks a bunch!~ $700.USD 

Folk Buddha from Laos carved from hardwood possibly teak. The expression on his face is sublime. I usually don’t go into subjective hyperbole unless I really mean it. These were carved in rural Laotian communities as a devotional act, rather than to adorn temples or put on an altar. Anyway even with the obvious damage I think in terms of Ethnographic Art this piece is exceptionally fine. Late 19th CE, H: 46cm/18in and W: 15cm/5.9in.

~Sold to Thailand, kpa khun kap!~$320.USD 

Very rare and eclectic Yao ‘lingpai’ (literally a ‘decree/order tablet’) and it represents the traditional bamboo tablet (usually with a written demand or report) presented to the emperor in the past. It is used by many ethnic groups in Southern China as well as the Han. During ceremonies (be they Nuo, Yao or Taoist etc.), the priest stands in front of the altar with the ‘lingpai’ held in both hands in front of him and bows to the divinities while chanting incantations. It can also be used to ...click for details

Exceptionally fine and well detailed votive terra cotta plaque from the Pagan Culture, Burma, 1200-1300CE. This is the only signed piece I have ever seen from this type of artifact. I acquired this along the Northern Thai/Burmese border around 15 years ago, at one time these were quite plentiful but I have not seen any authentic pieces for the past 5 years. H: 9.5cm/ 3.8in and base W: 7cm/2.8in. Reference photo in last enlargement from Ancient Buddhist Art from Burma Tausi Gallery.
