Sold, Thank you  

A dynamic white bronze (hakudo) image of the Daruma, the highly revered founder of Zen Buddhism, standing firmly planted on the hard ground, unswayed by the tempest tearing at his robes. Superb craftsmanship and an unusual orange peal texture set this piece apart, facial features and detail being extremely realistic. It stands 11 inches (28 cm) tall, and dates from the first part of the 20th century.

A PAIR OF JAPANESE BUDDHA CANDLE LAMPS

I have never seen anything like these before in 30 years of dealing in Asian art. They appear to be a true pair of figures, each depicting the infant Buddha. From each head rises a column surmounted by a sconce to hold a candle; the sides open to make the removal of the used candle stub easier. It is possible that the figures are of Nikko and Gakko, Bodhisattvas of sunlight... Click for details

These bronze altar candlestands take their theme and some design aspects from China, but the overall shape and bronze filigree work indicates a 19th century Japanese origin. The eyes on the bases derive from ancient Chinese archaic bronzes where such stylized features were common. The low relief design is a lightning pattern , a version of the Greek key fret design, popular in China for centuries and often used by Japanese artisans in their own designs. They are in very good condition, except... Click for details
