A Magnificent Rare Haida Spruce-Root Hat, 1900 - 1915
This is an exceptionally finely woven Haida spruce-root hat, painted in red, black and blue with a large bird, presumably an eagle or a raven. The head is at the front brim, the tail feathers are fanned dramatically at the rear brim, and the sides depict the wings. The crown of the hat is woven in a very tight plain weave, but the brim has elaborate zigzag patterns woven in. This hat is in pristine condition.
Madonna with Child Enthroned by Giovanni dal Ponte (di Marco), Circa 1420-1425
In this composition, the Madonna and Child are locked in tender embrace with one another, flanked by Saint Anthony Abbot on the left (identified by the small pig that sits dutifully at his feet) and Saint James Major on the right (holding the attributes of a book and a pilgrim's staff). Giovanni dal Ponte arranged the composition of these four central figures carefully to convey a sense of recession into space.
Fluorite on Calcite
There are only a few Shangbao Fluorites that are worthy of position #1, this one is surely in the running. It is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful Fluorites from anywhere. It has a single huge Fluorite crystal at the top of a large Calcite matrix. The Fluorite is the classic Shangbao stepped mixture of octahedron and cubic shapes, it is really akin to an octahedron that seemingly never came to a point. I have totally given up trying to get the colors true on these Fluorites. There is something about the fluorescence in Fluorite that fools the camera.
