    2. kyratango kyratango, 8 years ago
      Thank you Sean!

      Looks like Da Mo or Bodhidarma with his wide eyes and big eyebrows, but not sure...
      And no mention of a dog with him...
      Still researching!

      kyra, I am afraid it's a cast replica of Dehua. The mark looks undefined/blurred and unlikely to be carved. I agree he could be one of the disciples of Buddha.

      Hi shrine! Glad to see you :-)
      I know it is not an antique because the expert I commissionned to sell things when my mom died said all was 19th or early 20th (it was in 2000 and chinese items were not so high than now!)
      But it has at least 90 years.
      Still searching who is the dog ;-))

      mark is to blurry normally revival pieces are He Chaochun Yin
    10. apostata apostata, 1 year ago
      fuhu luohan , what they call a surmounter of tigers, value depends on the mark in case if it is an su xuejin, can,t see
    11. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
      Thank you for your comment, apostata.
      No value at all now that the cat made it fell and it is broken in several pieces :-(

      yikes kyra!! bummer. i wish i had a cat i could blame for the pieces i break!
    13. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
      Ho2... She only broke 2 pieces from my family heirloom... But I love her anyway ;-)

      Maybe time to learn kintsugi? I have a pile of broken things to restore if I can find a place to work that my cats can't get to while I do it.

      BTW, I have been re-watching the 1980s TV series Shogun and the attention to detail is amazing. I notice a bowl being used in the tea ceremony that had a kintsugi repair. I paused and examined it closely, sure enough!
    16. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
      Kwd, thank you for the idea! I was considering it before, just waiting for the courage to put pieces together and see what it will look like... A kyratisation project, for sure! :-)
