Hanhai Hong Kong Auction 2016 Returns with Important Buddhist Works of Art and Chinese Archaic Bronzes

Following their successful sale last November, Hanhai Hong Kong returns in the autumn season this year with a strong focus on buddhist art and Chinese archaic bronze artefacts. Slightly tucked away from the buzz in Wan Chai, their elegantly-curated preview at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong sets a tranquil and peaceful backdrop for Hanhai Hong Kong’s two important sales, The Merciful Buddha II and The Bronze Age II. Past the showroom entrance, a gigantic canopy in pearl-white colour comes into view, creating a huge contrast with all the valuable ancient works of art pieces beneath. While you marvel at the modern geometry on the 3D-printed backdrop installation (which undoubtedly is also art), be sure to let the following highlighted treasures lock your gaze:
