Sotheby’s Hong Kong presents Curiosity III on 4 April at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, a sale that offers a total of 76 lots estimated in excess of HK$50 million / US$6.4 million and features a gathering both of objects formed by nature as well as man-made, a cross between the Western cabinet of curiosities and the Chinese scholar’s studio.

“This year’s curiosity cabinet brings together objects from ever more disparate spaces and time periods, from the Siberian tundra to Egypt and China, from the Jurassic period to Renaissance Europe. The centerpiece of the sale is the extremely rare 8th century lacquer head of a Bodhisattva, an object of transcendent beauty that will be shown for the first time to the public.” says Nicolas Chow, Deputy Chairman, Sotheby’s Asia, International Head and Chairman, Chinese Works of Art about the sale.
