White Jade Fu Dog
White Jade Fu Dog & Pups, Qing Dynasty
Chinese 18th-19th century white nephrite jade carving of a fu dog and 2 pups. It is easy to say that this work is a Qianlong Period (1736-1795) creation because the refined and detailed carving is precise. Being a little more conservative, this work was most likely created in the Jiaqing - Daoguang period (1796-1850). The movement of the pups coming up to confront the mother has an effect of adding a dynamic sense to this family unit. The jade is a very light grey-white with a mottled brown at the very bottom.
Luba Stool

 

Luba Stool with Caryatid Figure, 1890 - 1910
Traditionally in Luba tribe society, pieces such as this and other utilitarian art were used by and for kings and important chiefs, who defined their power by the display of prestige objects during important ceremonies. Stools were among the most important of these objects. The ruler was literally and figuratively supported by a female caryatid figure, which also symbolizes the continuity of power in a matrilineal society.
