truly excited to be able to offer this stunning new series of approximately 18 tiles. (This number may change as new
tiles are added and other discontinued.) These museum quality tiles are beautifully executed by Mr. Ho, and reproduce
some of the classic figures of the Chinese Zodiac and mythology. Just click on any of the tiles in the above menu to

ANTIQUE KIMONO FABRIC PURSES
We are proud to introduce and offer to our customers this extraodinary line of handbags, clutches and portfolios by the
artist, Loredana. These are constructed of antique kimono fabrics, using a collection of different fabrics for
each design. These are "One of a Kind", so you must check with us by email to verify if one that is pictured is
These purses are professionally constructed, and to each, Loredana has added an artifact of some type; jade carving, silver
beads, bone carvings, etc. These are true and dramatic fashion statements, and although we try to do representative
photography, the visual impact of these stunning pieces is ten fold in person compared to our pictures.
HIROSHIGE WOOD BLOCK PRINTS
PRESENTED is a collection of ten Japanese HIROSHIGE wood block prints
from more than one collection from which to choose. Only seven are shown. This offering is for one print, and the buyer
has his choice. They are comprised of a number of different land and seascapes.
Wood block printing is a respected art form that dates back to the 16th Century in Japan.
Color wood block prints were introduced about 1770. The process is complicated and takes strict coordination between
the artist, the wood block cutters, and the printer to achieve the desired result. One block is required for each color,and
all must be registered as to placemat so as to assure no overlaps.

WOOD SCULPTURE OF CHINESE WARRIOR
We recently acquired this wonderful figure
of a Chinese Warrior. It was represented to us as the figure of General Kwon, a Chinese historical figure. He
appears to be doing battle with a snake (under his right foot), and his left foot is astride a turtle. I'm sure
this represents a story in Chinese history, but we have been unable to locate a specific source. However, we think that this figure may represent the following:
"Wei Tuo Pú-sà (bodhisattva Skanda) is recognized as
one of the eight divine protectors in Chinese Buddhism. Iconographically, he appears as a majestic general in his armor.
Before entering Nirvana, Buddha ordered the general,
who remained in this world, to protect the Buddha Dharma. After the death of Buddha, the relics were robbed by evil demons.
The bodhisattva Wei Tuo managed to overcome the demons and recovered the relics of Buddha.
Wei Tuo Pú Sà is regarded as a devoted guardian of Buddhist
monasteries who guards faithfully the Buddhist treasures and the objects of the Dharma."
