Qianlong Jade Boulder

Qianlong Jade Boulder

This Spring, Tennants Auctioneers are delighted to be offering for sale a fine and rare Chinese Celadon Jade Inscribed ‘Luohan’ Boulder from the Qianlong reign with its original hardwood stand. It will be sold as part of a Private Collection of Asian Art and European Antiques in the Spring Fine Art Sale on 16th March.

The boulder, which is offered with an estimate of £70,000-100,000 plus buyer’s premium, depicts Luohan Ańgaja sitting cross-legged in a rocky grotto, holding sutra (writings), walking stick and prayer beads.

Inscribed on the boulder are the Imperial seal marks and the Imperial eulogy to Ańgaja, which can be translated as:
“Wearing a hundred-patch robe and leaning on a proper bamboo staff, his Vedic ritual texts in a bookcase, he stares at his akshamalika straight across his chest. What he has remembered is not nothing, although there are no words for it”.

The Boulder was purchased on 25th November 1955 from Trollope & Sons, London Ltd of West Halkin Street, Belgravia.
