If you are wanting the night life of Patong, Pattaya or even Hua Hin then ANGELES CITY is the place to live in the Philippines. Located in Luzon Province Angeles was the home of the former Clark Airbase (US) and is within 1 hour of the beaches of Subic Bay and 3 hours of the mountains of Baguio.

New malls, many new restaurants and convenience businesses have grown up in proximity to the townhouse area and with efficient public transportation readily available this townhouse development is more of an oasis. Of the 12, 2-floor,165sqm, 3 bedroom, large dine-in kitchen with very spacious living room homes that have been built 6 have been sold and others are under negotiation. The street is a cul-de-sac so the traffic is minimal but there is parking for each resident in front of their home. The developer has also built a small nicely shaded park for the townhome owners to relax and vist with one another and barbeque. Each home is to Western standards and is the best value for the style, size and workmanship that you will find in the Angeles area.

Buddhist Thangkas and Mandalas (4 Sold Individually)

Buddhist Thangkas and Mandalas (4 Sold Individually)

  • 24 Feb 2020 : 00:07 am

These four Buddhist Thangkas and Mandalas were painted by hand in Nepal nearly 15 years ago by a well-respected religious devotee, Sanja Lama, in Lakeside, Pokhara. Over the many years of our friendship I had bought more than 100 of these works from his gallery and sold them widely all around the world. In my opinion these four represent the finest in the art and so I have kept these with me as I moved from country to country. Now, I am anticipating a move to a non-Buddhist country and think it is time for me to part with these last four. As with all statues and images of Buddha, one is never an owner but must be considered a caretaker only. Each work is on thick, rubbed muslin cloth and measures 27 inches in height by 18.5 inches in width. All remain in very good condition. Each has been blessed. When I purchased these particular examples nearly 15 years ago I paid about $150 USD for each. I sold similar but inferior ones at $300 - $350 ( 9,000 - 11,000 THB) more than a decade ago.

Antique Rare Tibetan Thangka On Silk

Antique Rare Tibetan Thangka On Silk

  • 24 Feb 2020 : 00:07 am

This thangka purchased in Lhasa, Tibet nearly 20 years ago depitcs the founder of the RED HAT sect of Tibetan Buddhism. The work is completely hand-done and has the image on both sides. When I purchased the thangka neither the sellers nor I knew just how rare it is, but once I got it back to my gallery in the USA and researched it I was pleased to find out that that the craftsman who made it had worked on it nearly 200 years ago. It is a fine example not only of the craft of thangka making but it is a rare image as well. Thangkas on silk are extremely rare and should be cherished and cared for. I have travelled with this for 20 years but now must part with it for someone else to enjoy. 36 inches in height by 23 inches in width. More detailed images sent upon request. Serious inquiries only please.

AUTHENTIC HANDWOVEN MOROCCAN TANGEEN PATTERN BERBER CARPET

AUTHENTIC HANDWOVEN MOROCCAN TANGEEN PATTERN BERBER CARPET

  • 24 Feb 2020 : 00:07 am

I discovered a women's collective in the High Atlas Mountains of MOROCCO a few years ago and wanted to give support to this association that benefits the local women who otherwise live in dire circumstances. My desire to make the purchase was not just a gesture of support; I really enjoyed the vibrant colors of the carpet and the traditional TANGEEN PATTERN. The pattern is on both sides of the carpet. If you aren't familiar with tangeens they are the ceramic stove pipe type pots that are used for cooking. The other reason I bought the carpet was because, as THE DUDE said in the BIG LEBOWSKI, "It really tied the room together." Since the purchase I have sold the home where the carpet looked best and now decided to let someone else enjoy this beautiful and durable piece of domestic art. The carpet measures 7 ft 1 inch (215 cm) in width by 10 ft 5 inches ( 316 cm) in length.

Even on tile floors this carpet adheres well to the floors. Enjoy it in your home as much as I have in mine.

MAGIC BOX: HANDMADE BERBERY THUJ WOOD

  • 24 Feb 2020 : 00:06 am

This strong beautifully grained wood comes from the Atlas Mountains of MOROCCO. In the 1,500 year old Port City of ESSAOURIA many Craftsmen practice their arts. I have found this woodworker nearly living in a warren of this fragrant wood with shavings all over the floor. His smile shines from the shadows of his small shop and his few wares are always displayed proudly. Each time I return to MOROCCO I go to ESSAOURIA as part of my journey and I find the opportunity to go to his shop to support him by purchasing a few things. The magic box open with the easy twist of the top and reveals the secret compartments. Measurements: 5 cm unopened. 13 cm opened. (Diagonally)

EGYPTIAN ORNATE PAPYRUS SCROLL

EGYPTIAN ORNATE PAPYRUS SCROLL

  • 24 Feb 2020 : 00:06 am

Hand painted Egyptian papyrus depicting the prominent pyramids at Cairo. The paintings in the figures are shown in relief. What appears as a crack across the images is in fact painted into the design in order to represent the reliefs found on the walls of the ancient tombs. The full scroll measures 90 cm x 190 cm. As depicted, there is a 5cm easily repairable flaw in the papyrus. Unusually, in the dark, the image changes and illuminates tastefully. Must be seen to be appreciated. Offered at substantially less than the original purchase price.
