Japanese Art Site
Fine early example of a Jomon Period Dogu Clay Figure, the earliest known Japanese figures. The Dogu acted as effigies of people. They manifested some kind of sympathetic magic. For example, it may have been believed that illnesses could be transferred into the Dogu, and then destroyed, clearing the illness, or any other misfortune. Because of the ritual destruction of Dogu, they are quite rare. This primitive abstract fertility figure has a futuristic look. There are fun theories that st...

Japanese Gosho Ningyô with Samurai Attire, Signed by the 10th Generation Ningyo Artist Rozon. This master work is the results of ten generations and three centuries of ningyo artists.

Pair of Inari Foxes of sculptured and fired clay with luminescent powered white glaze. In traditional Japanese art, a pair of foxes typically flank the deity Inari’s shrine image. But in modern times, images of Inari have all but disappeared, replaced instead by images of Oinari’s messenger, the magical shape-shifting fox (kitsune 狐). Here the symbolism is two-fold. First, rice is sacred in Japan, closely associated with fertility (the pregnant earth) and with sustaining life. Inari ...

Chinese Neolithic Painted Pottery Jar - Machang (c. 2300 - 2000 BC)

This pottery jar was made over 4,000 years ago during the Machang Phase (c. 2300 - 2000 BC) of the Majiayao culture, also known as the Gansu-Yangshao culture, from present day Gansu or Qinghai province. The colour of the pottery varies slightly from pale brown to a more reddish brown due to uneven conditions in the Neolithic kiln.

Chinese : Scholar Art : Brush Articles : Pre 1900 item #999967 (stock #4128)
Hawkes, Asian Art

The brushpot is large and thick-walled, certainly a bitong to be used rather than made as a souvenir. It is deeply carved with a depiction of the seven sages in the bamboo grove, a popular subject that appears on bamboo brushpots dating back to the Ming dynasty. It has many age cracks though none look recent to me and the pot looks stable. I have conservatively dated it to the 19th century though it could be earlier.
