Eden Galleries offers a wide array of Asian art and antiques, with a focus on Chinese works of art, in the upcoming sale. Featured is a gilt bronze Manjushri-Ghosha Buddha. In Mahayana Buddhism, Manjushri is believed to have originated in China from Mount Wutai. According to mythology, the diety is an embodiment of great wisdom who uses his flaming sword to cut through ignorance and delusions. The available sculpture represents the craftmanship of the Ming dynasty. Seated on a lotus base, Manjushri’s right hand rests atop the knee, performing the mudra gesture.
The second session of the Peter Lyon & Harold Mousser Estate Auction also showcases a variety of imperial ceramics, including Song and Qing dynasty porcelain. Among them, a Yongzheng Jihong monochrome glazed porcelain pot is a highlight. Also available is a Kesi 12-chapter silk robe. In 1759, a dress code was established by the Qing court to indicate rank and status. Robes, such as the available piece, were only worn by one of the Emperor’s high-ranking consorts. This Kesi robe is decorated with the 12 symbols of sovereignty: the sun, moon, seven-star constellation, mountain, dragon, seaweed, and several other motifs. Also offered are antique jewelry pieces, jade sculptures, rugs, and furniture. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Invaluable.
