From aesthetic to divine, works of art and Buddhist figures

Gauchet Art Asiatique
11, Avenue des Orangers,
Nice, France
Jun 07, 2018 To Jun 17, 2018

Detail: A unique selection of rare pieces including Buddhist figures and fine Scholar items.

Among the sacred figures, a rare pair of Tang period gilt-bronze Bodhisattva and a stunning gilt-bronze Lokapala’s head from the Densatil Monastery in Tibet. This head is of the scarce testimonies of the pieces specially produced for the Densatil temple considered to be one of the most sumptuous in Tibet and which entirely disappeared during the Chinese Cultural Revolution.

Made of materials such as stone, bronze and wood, scholar’s objects unveil an aesthetic and a technical mastery which often announce important provenances and even sometimes imperial use.
