A gilt-bronze sculpture of Avalokiteśvara will be featured in the upcoming Pavilion Online: Chinese Art auction, offered by Christie’s. Of several deities in Buddhism, Avalokiteśvara is known as the bodhisattva of infinite compassion and enlightenment. The available piece shows Avalokiteśvara holding drapes while standing on a lotus base.
A Rouleau vase from China’s Kangxi period is among the ceramics in the display. The Kangxi period is largely known for its white and blue porcelains. From the Ming dynasty is a carved Tixi red lacquer circular box with a matching cover. An apocryphal signature reading ‘Zhang Cheng Zao’ is visible on the base. Also included in the sale is a set of three jade archer’s rings. One shows a continuous hunting scene ending with a four-character mark and with an imperial poem from the Qianlong Emperor.
