Fine and rare, large copper repousse and chased copper plate depicting a religious scene or narrative. This was acquired in Sri Lanka in the 1990s, the vendor said this was showing the life of Buddha, but the iconography suggests it is most likely Hindu as the central image is shown facing the left, sitting on a tiger pelt, set against a foliate scroll background. This could be representing Shiva with his consort Parvati and son Ganesh. Superb workmanship, circa 19th century. Diame...

Powerful Buddha image from the Tai Lue ethnic group from the Burma, Lao, Thai border region AKA “Golden Triangle”. Superficially these “folk images” lack the grace and serenity of the urban classical styles, but speak more from the heart of the people, as personal devotional merit making acts. This piece dates to around the 18th century; the “waisted” pedestal is typical of this period. Incorporated into the style is the much loved “bhumiparsha“ mudra, with stylized lot...

Two bone “knives” from the Golden Triangle. I acquired these in Chiang Mai Thailand about 20 years ago and was told that were used by a “hill tribe”, for ritual ceremonies that involved the symbolic letting of blood to heal the patient. Using bones in spiritual practices is a syncretic tradition in this region as the boundaries between Buddhism and the earlier Animist practices are blurred and seem to work in harmony with one another. These are old genuine old Shaman’s artif...

Image of the “Tiger Taming Arhat”- Fúhǔ Luóhàn, mounted on traditional silk paper scroll. Actual painting D: 144cm/57in x 91cm/36in, mounted D: 190cm/75in x 104cm/41in. I am very fond of this depiction- Chinese interpretations usually show a man beating the tiger into submission with a metal ring, this one shows the Master and Tiger living at ease with one another- more in tune with the original idea that the Tiger was tamed with kindness and the two eventually becoming friends...

Bronze “lost wax cast”, Rattanakosin style hand of a standing Buddha, depicting the Abhaya: dispelling fear gesture. This was cast separately and was not cut from a Buddha statue (no Buddha was harmed in the casting of this image). I have had this in my possession for over 20 years and date this to mid- 20th century, possibly earlier. There are still traces of red wax from casting process as well as a ceramic core. L: 24cm/9.5in. Please note this not a souvenir decorative export, but w...

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. The style is rather quirky but the face is typically Shan with Burmese gold and black lacquer. This has an unusual stone core rather than ceramic. There are a few chips to the lacquer otherwise perfect condition. H: 14.7cm/5.9in and W: 5.7cm/2.3in. Free shipping
