Deng Xiao Ping by Chong En Cao 370. Deng Xiao Ping in Guangdong by Chong En Cao (Cao Chong En; 曹崇恩) 2004

Deng Xiao Ping is a true hero to the people of Guangdong.  Not only did he give hope to the Chinese people, in general, because he ended the disconnection of China with the rest of the world, but he also was particularly benevolent to Guangdong, designating Shenzhen and Zhuhai, sister cities of Hong Kong and Macau, respectively, as special economic development zones.

In this bust of Deng, he has his hand at his ear, listening to the sea, which borders Guangdong, in the south, and is so important to making this province a key connection to the world, through its many port cities.

Springtime Story, sculpture by Xu Hong Fei (许鸿飞) 366. Springtime Story, original cast bronze sculpture by Xu Hong Fei (许鸿飞) 3/10

This is a really fun sculpture from Xu's chubby women series.  It shows one large woman pulling up 3 smaller women on a rustic seesaw.  The hanging girls are kin different positins, enjoying the ride.

Like all of Xu Hong Fei's sculpture, it is filled with movement, fun, and dynamism.  The finely done bodies and clothing show Xu's technical skills, as a sculpture, and the compositions shows his creativity.

Mother and Child, sculpture by Pan He 352. Mother and Child, original cast bronze sculpture from the Hakka series by Pan He (潘鹤)

The original calligraphy symbol for Guangzhou meant the 100 tribes, and the so-called Hakka Minority is one of those tribes.  Like many of the minority peoples, the Hakka still wear their traditional dress and live in much the same manner as they did a century ago.  Lin Feng Mian, one of the fathers of modern Chinese oil painting and one-time head of the famed Hangzhou School of Art was a member of the Hakka minority.

In this sculpture, a mother with her traditional Hakka hat carries her child papoose-style, strapped to her back, and she carries a walking stick to help her through the mountainous terrain where the Hakka live.

It is one in a series of studies of the Hakka, in sculpture, by Pan He.  It is one of the original versions of the sculpture and the complete sculpture includes the ox, shown on another page.  We also offer the final version of the sculpture, which sits on a small pedestal fashioned in the shape of a traditional Hakka hat.

Decorated bull cast bronze sculpture 312. Decorated Bull: cast bronze sculptures

This highly ornate bull is originally from the Three Kingdoms (Warring States) period of Chinese history (220-280 A.D.).  The original was unearthed, in Hunan Province, in 1977, and is part of the permanent collection of the Hunan Historical Museum.  It is highly decorated in the so-called long feng grain technique (see hyperlink for more detailed pictures).  His tail points to the heavens, his head is down, nostrils flared, and his stance is meant to show that he is ready to charge.  The bull represents power, vigor, and endurance.  In Chinese culture, it is a common gift from an elder to a younger person to remind them that hard work and enterprise can often lead to success, in life. This bull comes in two sizes: (L) a larger size: 35 cm (about 14 inches) long, 9 cm wide, and 19 cm high, weighing 4 kg, or (S) small: 19 cm long, 7 cm wide, and 11 cm high, weighing 2.5 kg.

Stone Dragon sculpture   Stone Dragon Sculpture

This was one of my first acquisitions, in China.  I found it while wandering a town, Zengcheng, near the school where I teach finance.  It might be made of one of the jades, but I am not certain: it is a nice polished stone, whatever it is.  It is a cute piece with its tail hooked around its horns and with its bared teeth.  Moreover, I was immediately attracted to it, as I am a dragon, in the Chinese zodiac. (2.7 kg)
