Great to visit Roger Keverne in Clifford Street and view his wonderful objects. #asianart #asianartinlondon #mayfair #artandantiques

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

Cast Solid Silver Standing Krishna
India
circa 1870

height: 7.2cm, weight: 157g

This fine, solid-cast silver image of Krishna shows the god in his Krishna Kaliyadamana form, in a guise that relates to Krishna's childhood - the god had a
fight with the snake Kaliya, who had previously quarrelled with Garuda whom he snake had failed to honour with an offering. Kalyia subsequently poisoned a
pool of water with his venom. Krishna's friends, the cow-herders and their flocks were then poisoned when drinking from the pool. On hearing about this,
Krishna rushed to their aid and almost kicked Kaliya to death.

Krishna is shown here beautifully decorated with jewellery, bells and waist bands. He also wears a talismanic double tiger claw pendant suspended around the
neck. His hair is pulled up into a high bun and there are strands over the shoulders.

He holds a butterball in his right hand, an allusion to another incident in his early life when he stole a butterball from his mother's larder.

The image here is in excellent condition. The details are crisp and yet the silver has a fine patina and obvious age. It is very well modelled and cast. Such
images in silver seem to have been produced in the second half of the 19th century and this example is one of the best modelled that we have seen. #hindu #hinduism #krishna #serpent #asianartinlondon #asianantiques #asianart #tribalartlondon #parcoursdesmondes #quaybranly #instagram #instaart #sna #sothebys #christies #bonhams #maastricht #jgo #iacf #tefaf #tefaf2017 #bada #lapada

Two Amber Pointed Cylinder Ear Plugs
Kachin People, Burma
19th-early 20th century

heights: 6.7cm & 7cm, combined weight: 24.05g

Pointed ear cylinders or plugs such as these were worn in the ear lobes through large holes. Made of solid Burmese amber or burmite, they are thick but not
heavy.

This style was mostly worn by Kachin women in Western Burma, but also by Mizo women in Eastern India.

Similar examples are illustrated in Hoek et al (2004, p. 166) and Richter (2000, p. 78). The amber, known as burmite, is a type of fossilised amber that originates in Burma's Kachin State, and which was known to the Chinese as early as the Han
period (206 BC-220 AD). The two here have plenty of wear. They are not identical but are associated and most probably were worn as a pair. They have minor abrasions, inclusions
and so on associated with age and use.

Model of a Peacock, Gilded, Enamelled & set with Turquoise & Pearls
China
circa 1920

height: 45cm, total weight: 863g

This rather extraordinary and well-observed model of a peacock is made from enamelled and gilded (gold-plated) silver and silver filigree. The tail feathers are
also inset with large pear-shaped turquoise cabochons and the crest on the head is of pearls beaded onto fine silver wire springs.

The body of the peacock is decorated with light and dark blue, light green and cream enamel.

The peacock stands on a rocky outcrop which is of black lacquered carved wood. It grasps the rocky outcrop with one gilded silver foot, while the other
reaches forward tentatively or perhaps nonchalantly in the way that peacocks do.

Such extraordinary follies were created in China in the 1920s largely for the export market. It is purely decorative.

The peacock is in very fine condition. There are minor and expected losses to the enamel, minor scuffing to the stand, and some minor uncoiling of the wire
springs that comprise the crest on the head - all of which are lost of course in the overall profusion of the elaborate decoration. Overall, it is quite an
extraordinary item and a superb conversation piece.

Rare & Elaborate Silver-Clad Taribong Sword Hilt
Panay Bukidnon People, central Panay Island, Visayan Islands, Philippines
mid-20th century

length: 27.3cm

Not only is this sword hilt relatively rare in that it is from the Panay Bukidnon people of central Panay Island in the Visayan group in the Philippines, it is also an
excellent example. Modelled as a mythical naga-type creature, it has an unusually long, curved shout which is intact and not shortened as other extant
examples sometimes are.

The hilt itself has a base of wood and is clad in silver sheet that has been punched and chased with designs. Various spherical protuberances such as those
that denote eyes, ears and the headdress have been fashioned by hammering United States silver coins into shape. Some date son these are visible and they
are all with 1940s dates.

The base of the hilt is covered with sheet copper.
