In Buddhism, the goddess Tara is considered an embodiment of wisdom. According to mythology, the deity guides human beings along the path to enlightenment. A Chinese gilt bronze sculpture of Tara is highlighted in the upcoming Fine Asian Art Collection, presented by Ocean Star Auctions. Along with sculpture, the sale showcases a range of Chinese Hetian jade ornaments. In Chinese culture, it is believed that the owner of the Hetian jade will be blessed with fortune, love, and health.
Another lot of interest is a landscape painting by Chinese painter, scholar, and calligrapher Wen Zhengming. He frequently experimented with the concept of realism. Later in his career, Wen drifted away from the detailed representation of landscape scenes to focus on more freely washed depictions. He was known as one of four prominent painters during the Ming dynasty along with Shen Zhou, Tang Yin, and Qiu Ying. View these items and register to bid on Bidsquare.
