The Newars of the Kathmandu valley of Nepal are famous for their metal casting. In addition to the statues of deities they created bronze items for many different uses, including stands for statues. The one we are featuring here is of a typical Newar design, with an aureole of vlames, flowers and birds, surmounted by an umbrella. Each component is cast separately and fits into slots in the aureole, which itself fits into slots at the back of the stand. In all, there are nine or ten separate ...click for details

Often overlooked among Tibetan wooden artifacts are their footed trays. These were actually a fairly common possession, both in the home and in the monastery. They come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and decorations, but all share several common features. Almost all are footed and with steep sides and the corners are almost always joined with a fairly simple dovetail. Beyond that, they can vary a great deal. Some are pine, others are hardwood. Some are elaborately carved and painted, ...click for details

The body of the bird is wood; the wings, tail, crest and base of the stand are of some kind of composite material, obviously quite durable as it shows very little damage. The bird stands on iron legs. It probably originates from the Terai region of Nepal where hoopoes are common.

While we were shopping in Kathmandu this past winter, business was so slow and the political situation had become so unstable that many Tibetan merchants were seriously considering leaving. Dealers we had done business with for years were trying to convert their inventories into cash by offering very tempting prices for whole collections of items. We had the chance to buy a large collection of early Tibetan leather covered boxes. As a result we purchased thirty-four very nice ...click for details
