Asian art is not just made up of ideas or imaginations. It is defined by assimilation of various cultures and stories; of dynasties that ruled; of carvings of Gods. Featuring a collection of such artistry is the 2 day Fine & Decorative Asian Art Signature Auction Heritage Auctions.
The first day of the auction curates 354 lots which are a mix of Tibetan thangka, Chinese center pieces, Japanese hardware and more. One item that goes above and beyond, because of its detailed designs, is a well-decorated Chinese imperial gilt-bronze elephant from the Qing Dynasty. This item bags the highest estimation at $70,000. Other pieces like an imperial Chinese, nine dragons carved lacquer box, along with a Tibetan silk lama thangka (hand painted) from the 18th century, cannot go unnoticed.
