As Asia Week approaches at New York auction houses many of the lots offered are ancient with long lists of ownership to establish provenance. This lot caught my attention even though it was made only in 1999 by a living artist very close to my age. It is made of bronze and is full of energy as well as being graceful and enigmatic. You can view it at Sotheby’s beginning March 14 and it sells on March 19 at 11 AM.
