In Eastern Buddhism, Guanyin is recognized as the goddess of compassion and mercy. Despite attaining enlightenment, she is believed to have returned from the doors of heaven to help humankind find the right path. Guanyin’s reverence can be found among the followers of Buddhism since the first century C.E., as well as in the Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui. A white Chinese porcelain Guanyin figurine statue is available in the upcoming Multi-Estate Liquidation Auction, presented by Whitley’s Auctioneers. The luster-glazed effigy, dating back to 1979, is embellished with classic Eastern motifs and comes with a separate wooden base stand.
Another lot of interest is a small basket cup from the historical collection of Abe Cohn and the Emporium. It is woven entirely using tule reeds with a traditional “Tree of Life” pattern on both sides. The late 19th-century piece displays the craftsmanship of the native Klamath Tribes, who traditionally inhabited Southern Oregon. Collectors of books, textiles, furniture, tribal and vintage jewelry, and more can explore the auction catalog and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
