Male Bust (2), original cast bronze sculpture by Pan He (潘鹤)
Several years ago, Pan He was bed-ridden from illness. Never one to waste time, He produced about fifty small busts of men and women, sculpting them from clay and having them sent to his studio for casting in bronze. Indeed the media has spun its own story about these pieces, dubbing the male busts as the 18 heroes. That is not actually the case, and there were more than 50, including both men and women, many of which are still in He's possession.
We especially like this one. It has a lot of character.
As this is one of the few that has come onto the market, it offers a rare opportunity to own the work of this great Chinese sculptor, the Rodin of China.

Growling Tiger on Tree Stump, original teapot art by Sun Jin Li
This is a teapot from Sun Jin Li's forest series. In this series, the focus is on the animals, which are done in extreme detail, in miniature. If you look at them with a magnifying glass, you can see detailed etching of "fur", and features of ears, mouth, nose, eyes, paws and claws, and body are all done with great precision with different colors of clay (see close-up on hyperlink page).
This one has a growling tiger sitting on top of a tree stump made of red clay with brown clay to make bark.
Poised to Strike, original cast bronze sculpture by Xu Hong Fei (2010)
One of the great things about Xu Hongfei's sculpture is that it shows movement. The women from his chubby series also show gracefulness because, even though they may be large, chubby people are often also very graceful.

Bruce Lee, original sculpture by Cao Chong En
Cao was commissioned by Lee's family to make an 18 meter sculpture of him for his home town, in Guangdong (Canton) Province, and he made a smaller, 2 meter version for Avenue of the Stars on the waterfront on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong.
This is a smaller cast bronze version, 308/700. We also offer a terracotta version from a series of 70.

Happy Together, original artist's proof cast bronze sculpture by Pan He
There is transparent social commentary in this sculpture, as China is composed of the majority Han Chinese along with over 50 minority peoples. Although it goes about it in a peculiar way, injecting Han majority people as the elite of traditional minority stronghold, like Xinjiang and "Inner" Mongolia, China's spoken goal is always to have a harmonious society of one big happy family.
