  • Thumbnail for Figure of a monk
    Figure of a monk

    Nepalese brass artifact of a seated monk. The robes & begging bowl indicate a monk. His head is shaved in the front, but three long strands of hair cascade down his back. His robe displays Chinese designs only visible from the back. He holds a vajra in his right hand and appears to wear earrings. The left earring is inlaid with what appears to be red sealing wax while the one on the right bears traces of the same material. The base conceals ritual deposits beneath a hammered copper cap marked with a crossed vajra design. All of these metal images were originally made for ritual use. The containers for deposits hidden within the bases indicate a category of images once valued for their efficacy. It is instructive to consider what their value is in their present situation, surrounded as they are by a society that may appreciate their visible surfaces, and yet generally dismisses the idea that images such as these can exercise power when skillfully utilized.

  • Thumbnail for Bronze bowl
    Bronze bowl

    Signs of the zodiac. This is a vessel for sacred liquids prepared and used in Hindu Tantric ritual. In the interior bottom is a strange, quasi-anthropomorphic (phallic?) figure. It appears to have a Kadiri inscription of 4 characters above the sign for Sagittarius. Mummy-like anthropomorphs are repeated above the zodiac, interspersed with figures in the so-called East Javanese Wayang style. This is a very old and significant ritual object. The figures on the surface are ancestral to the Wayang Kulit puppets in the Dickinson collection. At one time it would have had a lid. An almost identical piece, with lid, is published among the national treasures of Indonesia's National Museum in Art of Indonesia: Pusaka, H. Soebadio (ed), 1992, page 114).
