Sacred to Profane – vCatalogue

5000 Years of Asian Art – The works of art in this private, London-based collection of Chinese, Southeast Asian and Japanese works of art have been assembled over a period of thirty years. They show perfectly the joys of owning early and later Asian art and the many hours of enjoyment the collector had in putting together this group. The works of art range from a Chinese hardstone bi-disc that dates back to the Liangzhu culture, circa 3000 BC, via examples of Chinese porcelain and woodwork, jade and rock crystal carvings, textiles and export silver to Japanese ceramics, cloisonné enamel, lacquer and contemporary paintings.
