Item Details
Description
A PAINTED POTTERY FIGURE OF A LOKAPALA, TANG DYNASTY
China, 618-907. The belligerent figure shown standing triumphantly atop a struggling demon lying atop a rockwork base, wearing elaborate layered armor with epaulets at the shoulders, his broad face modeled with the features of a foreigner below the tall phoenix-form helmet, with traces of ancient black, green, and orange-red pigment.

Provenance: An Austrian private collection. Kunsthaus Zacke, Vienna, 20 April 1996. Dr. Mons Fischer, acquired from the above. A copy of the auction invoice is accompanying this lot. A seasoned private collector of modern and contemporary art, Dr. Mons Fischer has also acquired fine Chinese works of art since the 1980s, eventually building one of the most important collections of its kind in Austria.
Condition: Some old repair as generally expected from Tang dynasty excavations. Losses, fissures and encrustations. Two drilled holes from sample-taking. Overall, good condition and presenting very well.
Scientific Report: A thermoluminescence analysis report issued by Oxford Authentication on 11 February 2020, based on sample number C120a76, sets the firing date of three samples taken at 900-1500 years ago. A copy of the report, issued by Oxford Authentication, is accompanying this lot.
