Chubby Polo, original cast bronze sculpture by Xu Hong Fei (2010)
[series of 10]
This is really a cute piece. The woman is bent over one side of her horse, ready to take a shot at the ball. The horse is in mid-gallop, and the view from the rear is quite fun.
We always appreciate the movement that Xu Hongfei (许鸿飞) depicts in his sculptures. They are so alive, in ways that make them even more fun. Xu is known for his chubby series, in which he depicts chubby women doing many fun activities. Far from poking fun at chubby people, Xu thinks that chubby people tend to be more fun, and he likes to create sculpture that exudes fun.

Fish 7- Rough Sailfish: original one of a kind black marble sculpture by
Bo Liang, 2007
This sailfish, in Bo Liang's series of eight black marble sculpted fish, still retains some of the roughness of the original marble: this its name. He has a large dorsal sail fin, some lateral fins, forward, beady eyes, and a snub nose. Weighing in at 6.5 kilograms (around 15 pounds), he's no lightweight. Each of the eight fish in the series has its own character and charm; you can see them all together on the hyperlink page.

Ram: original abstract ceramic sculpture by Mei Lin Han (Han Mei Lin)
Han Mei Lin is best-known, in art circles, for his ceramic art, while most of the world knows him for his Olympic mascots for the 2008 China Olympic games, although he also has done work in metal and wood.
We like the shape and colors of this abstract Ram. It is a subtle piece that can fit into many niches of your overall decor.
A dissident artist during the cultural revolution, Han has had exhibitions outside of China since the early 1980's. He is now an older venerated artist who is called upon to create public art for important places and events.

Turtle Dragon: cast bronze sculpture
This cast bronze animal has the head of a dragon and the body of a turtle, much like the turtle dragon teapot in our teapot section of the catalogue. Turtles are lucky and dragons are most auspicious, so the combination of the two might just bring you supreme luck. This cute little guy measures 24 cm long, 12 cm high to the tip of his horns, and 12 cm wide. The turtle theme is prevalent in Chinese art, and you can have turtles in teapots, glass, and cast bronze sculpture, all, here, in the pages of the Leona Craig catalogue. This turtle dragon is not made by the studio, in Xian, whose work we feature, normally, in the gallery. We also have a more aggressive bronze turtle dragon sculpture by them on another page.

Young Deng Xiaoping, original cast bronze sculpture by Cao Chong En
Cao Chong En has done sculptures of influential Chinese people, from Sun Yat Sen to Henry Ho, the Macau gambling king. Although you will not find Mao Zedong among his work, he has done several sculptures of Deng Xiaoping, Mao's successor, who reopened China to the world and is considered a real hero, especially to the people of the south.
This sculpture is a young Deng, in his early twenties, dressed in Red Army garb.
