The unusual fretwork on this two-panel screen is more reminiscent of an old European cathedral than 18th century Hubei Province in China where it originated. Although at first glance it looks plain, almost severe, its appeal is in the details. The 12 vertical bars on each panel are separated with 36 small carved designs in two different shapes--one a diamond shape centered with a tiny flower, the other a cross centered with a circle...

Still bearing very slight traces of gold leaf, this small 15th century bronze head of Buddha is from Burma's Ava Period (1287-1752). It most likely was commissioned and donated by a family as an act of merit, and was buried under a stupa for centuries. The Burmese of the time were skilled metalworkers. When a bronze Buddha image was cast, even a small one such as this, astrologers were called in to name the most auspicious day and hour for the casting, and monks cleansed the site of evil spirits...
