Avalokiteśvara is widely known as the Buddhist deity of compassion. He is also believed to be the embodiment of the eternal Buddha who offers salvation to humanity. A 16th-century Korean Avalokiteśvara sculpture will be available in the upcoming Exceptional Private Collection of Asian and Tribal Art sale, presented by The Scanlan Collection. The figure is seated on a lion with a beaded crown over his head.
Jamali’s cork painting of an idol is also offered in this sale. American artist Jamali is best known for his explorative style and figurative paintings. Noting his artistic mannerisms and techniques, art critic Donald Kuspit believes Jamali’s style requires its own name: Mystical Expressionism. This distinctive style links contemporary consciousness with traditional methods. Other featured lots include a Fukagawa punch bowl from the late 19th century. The Japanese bowl features a Hou-ou bird on both the interior and exterior. Its panels are separated with recurring geometric designs, landscapes, and floral patterns.
