Quirky miniature alter piece from a Chinese ethnic minority. This sourced in Yunnan in the late 1980s, and the item itself is circa 19th century. I am inclined to say this is a Miao/Hmong or Yao/Mien item. This intricately carved as a small table with a key fret pattern and “dou” shaped vessel with animal feet and lotus leaf pattern on top. A “dou” is used for holding ceremonial offerings to a deity or heaven in Chinese culture. The lid is missing and its true function is el...

Interesting old Burmese/Shan hand written book on handmade Saa (mulberry pulp paper). There are 12 pages between the covers- most of these books are usually related to either Buddhist studies or shaman rituals, but as I can’t find anyone who can read this it is being sold as a fine example of calligraphy. All the materials are handmade from the string binding the pages together to the charcoal ink. In this day of ideas being conveyed on a keyboard, back then one really had to think...

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.

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 ...

Good circa early 20th CE pair of miniature Lanna Northern Thai Buddhas. The small one on left is amulet sized (H: 5.2cm/2in) with traces of gold and black lacquer and the larger one is a small votive image (H: 7.2cm/2.8in). I believe these to be cast in zinc.

Large, circa 18th century Shan Jambupati (royal attire) Buddha, from the Amarapura period (1789-1853). (see last two images for 18CE examples). The finial has been replaced and is not original and removable with some minor loss to the bottom of the crown noted in last enlargement. 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 ...

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...
