Eccentric Ornament Gourd; grown into an eccentric form by being tied during growth. Undecorated gourds. They were valued for their pleasant shapes and patination, and for their symbolism; it was not at all unusual to have a few about the studio or home, hanging from a stick, a piece of furniture, or a ruyi, set on a stand, or just lying on a table or in a bowl or dish. This example, which from a certain angle resembles a young goose, has been restrained during growth by a series of cords to achieve a delightfully eccentric form. (4502)

Seated Shakyamuni Bronze, Gilding remnants remain. The Buddha's legs are crossed in the lotus and he is seated on a double lotus throne (padmasana). His lowered right hand (bhumisparsha mudra) records the moment just prior to his enlightenment as he called the earth to witness his worthiness to achieve liberation. He is seen here wearing a heavy and thick robe with uneven folds. He bears the typical iconography of the Buddhahood (laksanas) including the cranial bump or ushnisha the mark between the eyes (urna) and elongated earlobes with no jewellery, which is symbolism for his renunciation of his royalty.
