Sold for €9,100

Lot details

China, 1661-1722. Seated in dhayanasana on a double lotus pedestal, the robes enameled in aubergine and finely decorated with medallions enclosing cranes, blue with ruyi-shaped clouds and dharmachakra, and green with butterflies and floral sprigs, secured at the waist with a blue ribbon. The face with a benevolent expression and downcast eyes, flanked by elongated earlobes, the hair in tight curls and painted in blue. The lotus pedestal supported by a base with two dragon heads centered by waves and a flowerhead.

Provenance: From the collection of Sheila Rosevear Urquhart (1908-1992), and thence by descent in the same family. Born in China during a turbulent time, Sheila spent an unforgettable childhood in the public concessions of Shanghai after the fall of the Qing government when she was only three years old. In 1932, she left China for Burma with her husband. Her memoirs were published in 2009 in the book ‘Sons of Heaven’ which shares her upbringing in China and includes personal drawings.
Condition: Superb and absolutely original condition with only minor old wear and firing flaws. No repairs of any kind, no fills, and no losses. A ceramic figure from the Kangxi period in such pristine collection must be considered extremely rare.

康熙素三彩佛陀坐像
中國,1661-1722年。佛陀結跏趺坐坐於雙層蓮座上,著坦胸式寬袖袈裟,長眉細眼,面龐圓潤,神色沉靜肅穆。釋迦牟尼衣飾上以素三彩黃、綠、紫三色為主,修飾蝴蝶花卉紋。腰部飾藍色束帶。蓮座底部修飾雙龍。整尊塑像設色沉靜,造型沉穩。

來源: Sheila Rosevear Urquhart (1908-1992) 收藏,保存在同一家族至今。Sheila出生在中國的動蕩時期,三歲時在清政府垮台後的上海租界渡過了難忘的童年。1932年,她隨丈夫離開中國前往緬甸。她的回憶錄於 2009 年出版在《Sons of Heaven》一書中,文中分享了她在中國的成長經歷,其中包括她的繪畫。
品相:極好的且絕對原始的品相,只有輕微的磨損和燒製缺陷。沒有任何形式的維修,沒有填充,也沒有缺損。如此質樸康熙年間的造像,可謂極為罕見
