picture of "Fish 6": original marble sculpture by Bo Liang 311. Fish 6: original black fossil marble sculpture by Bo Liang

This is fish number 6 of Bo Liang's black marble sculpted fish, which are one-of-a-kind carvings from black marble that contains fossils of ancient sea creatures.  It is one of the larger ones and looks like a rockfish or another type of wrasse.  It has a lot of detailed carving on the sides, right down through the bottom, which is wider and flat to give it stability.  Although it is one of the shorter of the eight different fish (you can view all 8 on the hyperlink to the photo of this one) that Liang has made in this series, measuring 36 cm long (over 14 inches), it is taller than the others, 19 cm high (about 8 inches), and it is the heaviest, weighing in at almost seven and a half kilograms (abour 17 pounds).  The price includes shipping.

Full size Qing Dynasty Zodiac rabbit head reproduction  351. Rabbit Bust: cast bronze reproduction of Qing Dynasty sculpture. 

This is the other of the two Qing Dynasty heads that were recently sold at auction by the YSL estate.  We offer it for much less than the original selling price of $20 million.

The original was part of the zodiac (Chinese twelve animal zodiac; 2009 is the year of the ox) fountain at the summer palace of the Emperor Qianlong (1711-1799) of the Qing Dynasty.  His additions to the old summer palace included architectural work by an Italian, Giuseppe Castiglione, and fountains by a Frenchman, Michel Benoist.  This rat head and the other, the rabbit, shown below, were part of the spoils of war taken by European soldiers, in Beijing, in 1860, at the end of the so-called Opium Wars.

We also offer the rat bust that was sold from the same collection (see, above).  They both have a folk art appeal, and they will definitely be recognizable, with all the controversy surrounding the recent auction of the originals, in 2009.

The bronze casting studio that we represent in our gallery is making these from detailed photographs of the originals taken by one of their friends.  They made 6 of these full size versions, so far, and they are going to make another small batch, in the near future.  We have only one pair left for sale, now.  They each are over 20" tall and weigh over 40 pounds.

The studio is in the process of making a limited number of exact copies of the originals in three different sizes: original size, which is around 20 inches tall, down to a more manageable version.  They will be available soon.

Rooster: original ceramic plate by Han Mei Lin 334. Rooster: original signs of zodia plate series by Mei Lin Han, 1984

This is the rooster plate from this series of twelve plates (he told us that he would not make another set) depicting the animals of the Chinese zodiac.  It is made of red clay with a glaze, and the bull is carved into the plate using a bamboo stick.  Mei Lin Han is the artist who designed the mascots for the Chinese Olympics, in 2008.  He is a contemporary of the famous Yixing teapot artist, Jiang Rong, who recently passed away, and they even created some ceramic artworks together.  He has done sculpture in ceramics as well as metal and wood, and he is highly regarded, in China.  We also have a rare complete set of all 12 plates, currently available.

Tiger on tiger Zun: cast bronze sculpture 333. Cast-bronze Tiger Zun

We like the folksy appearance of this tiger-on-tiger wine vessel, called a "zun", in Chinese, from the Zhou Dynasty (1122 to 256 BC). The small tiger on the back of the larger one is actually a pull to remove the small lid he sits on, and the larger tiger is hollow for storage, originally, for wine.  The original  sculpture was unearthed in Jiangling city, in Hubei Province in 1993, and is now part of the collection of the Jingzhou museum.  It is a smaller piece (about 8 inches long), so you can use it as a decorative piece, almost anywhere.   Its shape and the decoration on its body give it a real folk art appeal.

It is made by the bonze casting studio, in Xian, whose work we feature in the Leona Craig Art Gallery on-line.  Its small size gives it versatility, in where you can display it; and it also makes a perfect gift.
