Lao Buddha

~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.

$175.USD 

Good West Timor men’s mantle using supplementary warp weaving decoration on the side panels and quirky embroidered fanciful animals in the center panel. This piece is late 20th century and is woven with homespun cotton thread. Except for the embroidered pattern the dyes appear to be natural. The colors on this piece are quite toned and mellow compared to what I have seen recently coming from that region. No damage, some light fading may be noted in the reddish areas of the first enlargem ...click for details

~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

$220.USD 

Good west Timor Atoni mantle for a man with quirky mythical four legged bird pattern. The two outside panels are made with commercial cotton thread while the center is composed of handspun cotton and indigo. I bought this from old Australian collection and was acquired in the 1980’s so I would date this piece circa 1950s to 1960’s. Good condition with a few pinholes and minor stains- no rips or tears. L: 170cm/67in (without fringe) and W: 115cm/45.5in.

$500.USD 

Ensemble of 5 old wooden statues commemorating departed loved ones. These were kept in the “attic” of a home and were not meant to be free standing. I bought these from an old Australian collection which were collected in the 1980sin West Timor, so these date 1950’s to 1960s. The two largest figures have some age cracks on the back and the feet on the female figure are damaged, but all have nice patinas and are carved from hard but not particularly heavy woods. Sizes range from 19cm/7.5i ...click for details

$1300.USD 

Exceptionally fine and rare horse carpet from Tibet- circa late 19th- very early 20th CE. Very elegant blue and white pattern with floral medallions and scrolling borders with all hand spun wool warp and weft and mostly undyed pile. The colors are natural except a tiny amount of reddish pink and some abrash in the indigo as to be expected from an old village weave. No damage other some frayed threads along the selvedge.

~Sold to Oz, cheers~! $120.USD 

Iban pua with Bujang Belang Pinggan (Dayak mythical hero pattern- see last enlargement for reference). Please note this piece is very badly faded on one side. This is made with natural dyes and hand spun cotton threads in the center with commercial red, white and blue threads on the side bands. Circa 1940-1960, L: 164cm/64.5in (not including fringe) and W: 84cm/33in. The two panels are and hand stitched together- no holes or tears. Also note the dark band across the middle is just my shadow stan ...click for details

Prices and further provenance available on request 

These three, finely made, older examples of traditional Kenyah Dayak glass beadwork feature beautifully composed, decorative themes. Each is profusely laden with the spiraled horns, claws, jaws, and tails of the dragon associated with the underworld and fertility. The largest panel example here, a protective decoration for a baby carrier, shows the anthropomorphic face of a godly being surrounded by a complex but perfectly balanced array of dragon spirit symbolism. The smaller panel, once part o ...click for details

Price and further provenance on request 

The handle of this important, regal flywhisk shows a lively, young, kneeling female with emphasized breasts and feet, in the manner of a supplicant devotee of the Shango cult or of a woman who is a messenger of the spirits. The hardwood handle has acquired a superb, glossy, honey-brown patina from much use; the long leather strips are elegant and well-preserved, and are attached to the wooden handle by means of braided strapping to add strength and effectiveness to the functionality of the whi ...click for details

$220.USD 

Genuine antique Shan lacquer box circa late 19thCE. Most Burmese lacquer being offered on the internet purported to be antique are vintage at best and new at worst. I acquired this in Yunnan, China along the Burmese border but of Shan (nationality in China). Although there is some damage the craftsmanship is exquisite which is why I put a grain of sand in a couple of the images to put the work into perspective. Personally I prefer Shan lacquer more than Burmese because the designs tend to ...click for details

$150.USD 

A jumble of semi strung colorful Indo Pacific trade “seed” beads. I found these in Burma around 2003 near Pagan. Most would date around a thousand years old and would be considered Pyu/Pagan era and made of glass with a few which appear to be a kind of faïence. I had one strung and it is L: 72cm/28in. Total combined weight 100 grams. You should be able to get additional 4 to 5 strands of equal length from this lot. Ideal for a bead/jewelry designer or 1960s nostalgist.

Price and further provenance on request 

These old and well-used zoomorphic masks, each in the form of a bushcow - one possibly a calf, come from the Bwa or Nuna people of Burkina Faso, West Africa. They represent protective bush spirits, and were danced during the dry season, during funerals for elders, or during the initiations of young men - all chaotic and stressful times for the village. Showing wonderful, softened surfaces from many years of service. Organic red, black and white pigments are expertly organized in the typically b ...click for details

Masterfully carved and fitted with a lost-wax casted, brass finial in the form of intertwining serpents and amphibians, this royal horn was used by high-ranking males to drink palm wine during ritual and special occasions, alike. Made from a section of bovine horn, the carving shows the ubiquitous spider-like motifs of the Cameroon Grassfields, along with petaloid shapes, various geometric forms, and amphibious creatures, all highlighted with an organic, white pigment. It is in very fine, perfe ...click for details
