$80.USD 

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.

Nice miniature of White Jambhala- “The beneficence of the white Jambhala is to cure diseases, get rid of poverty and sins, promote charitable deeds and accumulate wealth. According to the sutra, his mantra can stop suffering, destroy bad karma and have a Bodhi mind. His mantra can also avert disaster and sickness. He also brings wealth to all sentient being if he or she chants his mantra. Om! Padma Trotha Arya Jambhala Siddhaya Hum Phat!” I picked this up in a flea market in Southern ...click for details

Very fine niello inlay silver box Buddhist themed depiction of the Royal Barge on the Chao Phraya River floating past Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn) flanked by apsaras on the lid and burlwood interior. The front reads “To Admiral Sir David Luce with best wishes from Admiral (signed) Chammarnand Layndvla, Bangkok, 5, January 1962”.

$400.USD 

Exceptionally rare amber sancai glazed Liao (907 CE – 1125 CE) tomb guardian (zhenmu shou). The Liao were a non Han, Buddhist culture contemporary to Five Dynasties and Northern Song, but assimilated the Chinese burial custom of building mortuary chambers with wall murals that show its origins in Tang culture and internment of precious goods. Liao funeral statues are very rare, I can find one published example of an unglazed pottery attendant (“Artistic Legacy of the Qidan” Art Mus ...click for details

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

Rare and well sculpted marble torso of Buddha seated in the Bhadra asana from the Tang Dynasty. This is a classic piece which clearly illustrates the Gandharan Greek inspired influence on early Chinese Buddhist art. The head and lower portion of base were not original on this piece so were removed by the previous owner. Included is a custom made stand. H: 13.7cm/5.4in and W: 11.2cm/4.4in.

$300.USD 

Good pair of Tang Dynasty gray clay bricks depicting “Atlas” type figures seated on lotus flowers. I was in Taxila once and saw similar figures which to my mind illustrate the Greco/Roman influence in Tang art. The lotus shows indicates an obvious Buddhist connection. Both pieces are painted with “stucco” in good condition with no damage. W: 14.5cm/5.8in and H: 17.7cm/7in each.

$1500.USD 

Rare classic, late 19th/early 20th century standing Lao/Lanna Buddha with one hand raised in the abhaya dispelling fear gesture. This piece represents a very eclectic regional style with inset stone eyes, “durian” spiky hair and exaggerated hands. The robe and gesture is typically Lao but the ears show a Lanna Thai influence- political borders are meaningless when it comes to Buddhist iconography from the Golden Triangle region. It is carved from a hardwood most likely golden teak an ...click for details

Fine and rare antique Tibetan saddle rug with auspicious symbols (peony flowers, ocean waves, clouds, pomegranates, and “frog prints”).

$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.

Good late Qing long silk embroidered panel with dragons, this was most likely as part of an altar ensemble- collected outside Dali, Yunnan at a Bai minority weekly farmer’s market in 2003. A small hole in the corner and minor losses to embroidery. L: 160cm/63in and H: 41cm/16in
