From my 2015 catalogue, this is one of my most unusual and important discoveries, a 17/18th century ritual spear from Tibet:
An important five-bladed spearhead from Tibet which matches the description of a spear in Nebesky-Wojkowitz’s classic book, Oracles and Demons of Tibet: The Cult and Iconography of the Tibetan Protective Deities. Page 15 contains a discussion of weapons carried by protective deities and the list contains ‘the lance with five points’. There appears to be no other similar spear known and it is plausible that this is the one mentioned by Nebesky-Wojkowitz. It was probably made to place in the chapel of a protective deity, where arms and armour were often deposited as votive objects. Nebesky-Wojkowitz also identifies the term of ‘mdung’ to describe the lances used by oracles.

The five near identical blades individually resemble a spearhead in the Metropolitan museum, see LaRocca, p.176. The spear heads are relatively flat in profile, double edged with a slight medial ridge and rounded tip. All decorated with striking gold flames on a dark background and ju-i shaped clouds sit at the base of each blade. Each head is connected to a square section arm covered in sheet silver. A two-stage russet iron socket with a faceted gilt knop. Displayed on a custom made wooden red shaft and metal base.

My thanks to Donald La Rocca for pointing out the Nebesky-Wojkowitz reference. #tibet #tibetanart #tibetanantiques #buddhism #buddhistart #asianart #asianartinlondon #asiaweek #asiaweekny #armsandarmor #armsandarmour #himalyan #artofthehimalayas

On Thursday the 1st of June we hosted the first of what will be regular lectures at our Lisbon gallery, organised by Jorge Welsh Research and Publishing. We thank Louis Mézin for a fascinating lecture “Chinoiseries. L’Europe et la Chine au XVIIIè siècle”. It was a sold-out lecture, but for those that we were not able to accommodate, a video will be available on our new website, to be launched in 2018.
The next lectures will take place in November coinciding with our yearly gallery exhibition, from the 16th November to the 9th of December, an exhibition that will have its first showing in London, coinciding with @asianartinlondon from the 4th to the 11th November.

Rare Stylised Ganesh Brass Kris Hilt
South Sumatra, Indonesia
17th century or earlier

length: 8.5cm, weight: 177g

This unusual kris hilt has been cast and then chiselled from brass. The form is that of a highly stylised Ganesh, the Hindu elephant-headed god, which is a
son of Shiva. This underlying form is a reminder of the influence of India and Hinduism on the Indonesian archipelago even after the arrival of Islam.

The hilt is decorated over much of its surface with foliate scrollwork. Some of it is pierced adding to the overall complexity.

The contours of the surface have been worn smooth by age and handling. The surface has a honeyed, golden patina. There are remnants of wood inside the
shaft opening. #ganesh #ganesha #brass #hilt #kris #krishilt #arms #weapons #sumatra #sumatran #indonesian #asianartinlondon #asianantiques #asianart #tribalartlondon #parcoursdesmondes #sna #sothebys #christies #bonhams #maastricht #jgo #iacf #tefaf #tefaf2017 #bada #lapada #islamic #islamicart

Carved Steatite Nomoli Figure
Sierra Leone
15th century or earlier

height: 17.3cm, weight: 1,362g

This steatite stone figure was made by the West African people whom early Portuguese sailors referred to as the Sapi.

Stone sculpture is rare in West Africa but small clusters of hundreds of such figures have been unearthed in Sierra Leone and in nearby territories. They were largely unearthed by a later people, the Mende and Kissi, who often uncovered them whilst working the land. The name 'nomoli' is a Mende term. It is likely that they were carved by the Sapi to represent ancestors - possibly they served as a memorial image for each individual who had died - and when found by the Mende, they were used again as ritual objects. The form of the figures has little or no relationship to anything produced by the later occupiers of the lands: the Mende, Kissi and related groups.

The figure here kneels on a base with bent knees leading to rounded hips, the abdomen leading to rounded shoulders. Muscular arms rest on the knees and a thick cylindrical neck supports an over-sized head with exaggerated facial features including pronounced lips and bulging eyes. A hole has been drilled to the top of the head, possibly for the insertion of some ritual material.

Chased Silver Rosewater Sprinkler
Kutch, India
circa 1850

height: 23.8cm, weight: 266g

This pleasing rosewater sprinkler is of solid, chased silver. It stands on a domed, ring foot; has an elegant, flattened spherical body; a baluster-form neck; and
a domed flower-shaped head topped by a solid-cast spherical finial. The head, which is perforated to allow perfumed water to be emitted, is embellished with
the addition of a solid-cast bird finial.

The body of the sprinkler is chased with floral and foliate scrollwork, and embellished with the addition of three solid cast peacocks. There is also a blank
armorial plaque.

See Dehejia (2008, p. 147) for a related example.

Rosewater was used in India as part of traditional wedding ceremonies. It was also offered to guests on arrival so that they might freshen themselves after a
journey. #silver #rosewaterspray #sprinkler #rosewatersprinkler #kutch #indian #islamic #islamicart #asianartinlondon #asianantiques #asianart #tribalartlondon #parcoursdesmondes #sna #sothebys #christies #bonhams #maastricht #jgo #iacf #tefaf #tefaf2017 #bada #lapada
