• Taiwan Obtains Stolen Buddha Head at Auction and Donates It to Mainland

    The stolen head of a Buddha statue carved in the Northern Qi Dynasty (550-577) will be placed back on its body and put on display to the public in Taiwan by the end of this May as the result of a cross-strait effort to recover the rare relic. The Buddha's head, which was carved from fine quality white marble, was donated by a believer to Taiwan's largest Buddhist monastery Fo Guang Shan in May 2014. Fo Guang Shan Master Hsing Yun learned from the donor that the Buddha's head was bought from an auction. Suspecting that the head could be a stolen relic, Master Hsing Yun contacted the State Administration of Cultural Heritage to confirm its source. The administration dispatched experts to identify the head, confirming that it belongs to a statue of Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, ori...

The stolen head of a Buddha statue carved in the Northern Qi Dynasty (550-577) will be placed back on its body and put on display to the public in Taiwan by the end of this May as the result of a cross-strait effort to recover the rare relic. The Buddha's head, which was carved from fine quality white marble, was donated by a believer to Taiwan's largest Buddhist monastery Fo Guang Shan in May 2014. Fo Guang Shan Master Hsing Yun learned from the donor that the Buddha's head was bought from an auction. Suspecting that the head could be a stolen relic, Master Hsing Yun contacted the State Administration of Cultural Heritage to confirm its source. The administration dispatched experts to identify the head, confirming that it belongs to a statue of Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, originally enshrined in the Youju Temple in north China's Hebei Province. Experts from the Hebei Museum said that the head was one of the three stolen heads of Buddha statues enshrined in the Youju Temple, the then-largest Buddhist monastery of the Northern Qi Dynasty 1,500 years ago. The statues represent the dynasty's highest level of attainments in Buddhism sculpture art, according to experts, who said that heads of the three statues were stolen by a group of thieves in 1992 and 1996. "I saw the statue before its head was lost. I drew a sketch of it because the Buddha's face is so beautiful. The statue impressed me so much that it was like engraved on my heart, I will never forget it," said Liu Jianhua, researcher with the Hebei Museum. Hebei authorities moved the three damaged statues out of the temple, placing them into the Hebei Museum for protection. "We lost a head of one statue in 1992. We don't know the status of that one, but at least the head of Amitabha which was stolen in 1996 should be well preserved, because it was the same group of thieves who did that. Since the head of Shakyamuni is well preserved, it should be the same for the head of Amitabha," said Liu. Learning the story of the Buddha's head, Fo Guang Shan donated the rare relic to the State Administration of Cultural Heritage, transferring its ownership to the administration at the end of 2014. "The action is a protection of China's cultural relics. It has a demonstrative effect on showing how people bring back the lost relics of China," said Master Huichuan, standing deputy abbot of Fo Guang Shan. The body of the Shakyamuni statue will be sent to Taiwan to reunite with its head by the end of May, when the completed statue will be showed at an art exhibition to the public.

Cant/Eng/Nat A rare Imperial enamelled glass snuff bottle from the 18th century was sold for 2- hundred thousand U-S dollars (1.5 million Hong Kong dollars) in a Hong Kong auction Monday. The price paid in the Sotheby's sale could be a world record for a snuff bottle. A variety of other bottles were sold at high prices on the first day of a highly anticipated four day event. Sotheby's Spring Auction started Monday in Hong Kong and already a world record could have been set. This snuff bottle was sold at 2- hundred thousand U-S Dollars to a Taiwanese buyer. The bottle is said to be made during the Qing Dynasty - the golden age for snuff bottles. It is classified under what experts call Imperial Porcelain. The bottle is decorated with nine peaches which, in Chinese culture, represent longevity and good omen. The bidding started at $4-hundred and 50-thousand H-K dollars and quickly spiralled to the huge amount that won the item. Auction patrons praised the piece, despite the steep price. But according to a Sotheby's expert, the rare Imperial enamelled glass snuff bottle, had other reasons to reach such an outrageous price. SOUNDBITE : (English) "It was a unique one, but the price was quite high. There were fierce competition in the back and it is worth owning because that bottle is unique in the world. I don't think you can have another like this one. It's truly a beautiful one." SUPER CAPTION: Mrs. Tuyet Nguyet, Snuff bottle collector Mrs. Tuyet Nguyet has been a serious snuff bottle collector for 35 years. She owns over 300 snuff bottles and is also the founder of Arts of Asia magazine. Ms. Nguyet claims to be the person who invited the two big auction houses, Sotheby's and Christie's for the first time to Hong Kong decades ago. She bought a 10-thousand U-S dollars snuff bottle this time but was very tempted to get more. The snuff bottle auction brought a total sale of 7-hundred thousand U-S Dollars and sales on other rare pieces were sold as high as 60-thousand U-S Dollars. Most of these high priced snuff bottles were also from the Imperial period. SOUNDBITE: "Most of the fine Chinese art pieces were auctioned in good prices. I hope this will give an impetus to the market for our fine Chinese art collectors." SUPER CAPTION: Jenny HUI, Chinese Ceramics and Works of art Department, Sotheby's Hong Kong But rumours have spread that China will crackdown on the export of Chinese antiquities from Hong Kong after the June 30th handover. It is reported that many of the antiques are being smuggled out of the country. Experts say uncertainties over Chinese policies after the handover, have caused prices to rise. Several collectors have sold off many of their pieces. Art buffs say that China needs to outline future policies for the good of the art market in Hong Kong. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The people who are concerned about this, (they) don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. So many of the serious collectors already shifted their collections abroad. So you find HK not a place for wonderful treasure of Chinese art." SUPER CAPTION: Mrs. Tuyet Nguyet, Snuff bottle collector The highlight of the four day Sotheby's Spring auction will be the Chinese porcelain auction which features nine rare pieces which could go reach five (m) million U-S dollars. This is Sotheby's last auction before the handover. The four day auction will end on Thursday. Sotheby's Spring Auction on snuff bottles sold a total of 81 snuff bottles.

Close up bronze dog head 16. Close up auction house consultant looking at dog head 17. Wide shot auction house consultant with dog head STORYLINE: A looted Chinese relic will be sold at auction in Hong Kong next month, three years after the multimillion-dollar sales of related pieces drew condemnation from the mainland. The bronze dog head, about 17 inches (43 centimeters) high, was part of a water clock in the 18th century Qing dynasty featuring the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. The auctions of three other heads - an ox, a tiger and a monkey - in May 2000 triggered criticism from mainland officials who first threatened to stop the auctions but later paid millions of dollars to secure the return of the artifacts to China. Beijing had argued the sculptures were looted by British and French troops during the second Opium War in 1860 from Yuan Ming Yuan, or the Old Summer Palace, and should be returned to the Chinese government. The chief consultant of the newly founded Hong Kong Auctions International Company Ltd., Kwong Lum, said the dog head is part of the family collection of a New Yorker. Lum declined to identify the American, whom he believes bought the relic from someone else. Lum, who migrated to the United States from Hong Kong 46 years ago, said the company was auctioning property it believed had been looted because "it is the only way that Chinese treasures could be returned to its motherland from foreign private collectors." The auction for the dog head was scheduled for October 26. The company expected the buyers to be the Beijing government or Chinese collectors but said it has no authority to stop foreigners from buying the piece, Lum said. Lum said the auction house didn't set a minimum price for the head, but the opening bid is expected to come to 4 (M) million Hong Kong dollars (513,000 US dollars). During the last such auction, the Port Art Museum, owned by state conglomerate China Poly Group, bought the bronze tiger head for 1-point-98 (M) million US dollars from Sotheby's. The museum also bought monkey and ox heads for 2-point-05 (M) million US dollars from Christie's. Lum said his auction house informed Beijing authorities about the auction two months ago but has received no response from them.

The auction of fine art doesn't always take place like this. (show auction house) [Lark Mason, President: iGavel Auctions]: "iGavel is an online art auction platform, and there are many independent companies that use it, and my company, Lark Mason and Associates, is one of them. So we have an auction that's occurring on April 17 and it ends on May 1st." Lark Mason is auctioning a selection of Chinese antiques through his online auction platform—iGavel. These pieces make up part of the Asian, Ancient, & Ethnographic Works of Art Auction. [Lark Mason, President: iGavel Auctions]: "So in this sale we've got some extraordinary items, including an imperial ancestor portrait that is of extraordinary large size. Probably dating to the mid 19th century, likely a prince from the imperial household. The quality of the painting, the workmanship, and the condition of this painting is extraordinary." Besides painted works, the sale will feature other forms of Chinese art. [Lark Mason, President: iGavel Auctions]: "We've also got a selection of very fine quality carved jade objects that range in date from the Ming Dynasty up to the 20th century." [Lark Mason, President: iGavel Auctions]: "A wonderful selection of porcelain, including a really beautiful vase, dating from the Kangxi period, that incorporates a decoration of peaches. And it has under glazed copper red and under glazed blue, over a very pale Saladin, which is a pale green background. And it's of extraordinary large size for this particular type and it actually was sold in 1943—in the sale of a famous dealer's collection that was seized during World War II." Western collectors had brought fine Chinese art to America during the 20th century. Yet now in the 21st century, the trend is starting to reverse. [Lark Mason, President: iGavel Auctions]: "Today the market's changes. China has become a powerhouse and Taiwan is certainly extraordinarily powerful economically. So there're a lot of collectors that want to have back things from their culture." Buyers can start bidding on these works of art on April 17th, without leaving the comfort of their home. The online auction will last for two weeks.

A blue and white porcelain bowl that’s nearly six hundred years old was sold for HK$229 million (US$29.5 million) at a Sotheby’s auction in Hong Kong on Wednesday (April 5). The price, which included fees charged by the auction house, was the second-highest price paid for a Ming-dynasty Chinese porcelain at auction and about twice the pre-sale estimate. The blue-and-white porcelain bowl has a diameter of 23 centimeters and is painted with a design of fish swimming in a pond of blossoming lotus. Made in the Xuande Period (1426-1435), the bowl has been preserved in extraordinary condition and is considered as a great example of early Ming blue-and-white porcelain in private hands. The tense bidding for the Xuande “fish pond” lobed bowl lasted around 12 minutes and was a tussle between four anonymous bidders on the phone and Mr William Chak Kin-man, a local dealer, in the sales room. Mr Nicolas Chow, deputy chairman of Sotheby’s Asia and international head of its Chinese works of art department, said bidding was down to just two phone bidders after the HK$130 million mark and that the winner was a client of one of the auction house’s Taiwan specialists. He said the bowl is among a few surviving examples with a design of fish swimming in a pond — one of Emperor Xuande’s favourite motifs. Dated from his reign between 1425 and 1435, the bowl was previously in a Japanese collection and had never appeared at auction before. “It is a piece that is very well-known in Japan, having been exhibited in the Tokyo National Museum in 1963, and the Kyoto National Museum in 1966, and published extensively thereafter,” Chow said. The record for the most expensive Ming porcelain piece ever sold is held by the Meiyintang Chenghua “chicken cup” that Chinese collector Liu Yiqian bought for HK$281.2 million in 2014.
