The algae-covered cans were traded for HK$213.5 billion. Identity symbols outweighed market significance.
Jiajing colorful fish-algae-covered jar was once Hu Huichun's old collection of "Temporary Deluxe Building". Its market position has always been very prominent. It was shot twice in 1992 and 2000. It has won 2.86 million US dollars (then equivalent to 22.3 million HK dollars) and 44.48 million HK dollars respectively. When it was shot by Cao Xingcheng, the owner of Lecongtang in 2000, it also broke the world auction record of Chinese porcelain at that time. 131 2897 7299 (Weixin Same Number) came out again 17 years later. Christie's took great pains to build its momentum. As an important target, both financial and material resources were spared no effort. The picture of the fish-algae cans juxtaposed with Da Vinci's "Savior" had once exploded friends, so this work is the biggest attraction of Christie's autumn shoot this season, and it was not surprising at the scene that night. The earth drew in a flood of watches and breathless anticipation.

Around the Ming Dynasty pottery released from Yue Congtang, Christie's joint painting and calligraphy department and the pottery handicraft department specially planned the evening auction of Ming Dynasty pottery painting and calligraphy in "Yuyuan Wenxin Craftsmanship". Thus, through painting, porcelain, lacquerware, furniture and Buddha statues and other artistic dimensions, 131 2897 7299 (Weixin Tong) outlined a relatively complete Ming Dynasty artistic outlook. Zeng Zhifen said that the reason why he pays attention to Ming Dynasty art is that the price of porcelain from Qing Dynasty to Republic of China is very high. "We can look farther. In the past art market, the artifacts and paintings of the Ming Dynasty were underestimated as a whole, especially in the areas of porcelain, painting and calligraphy. Under the background of the Eastern Renaissance, it was a major feature of the Ming Dynasty art that technological innovation and multi-perspective converged and stimulated new vitality. So Christie's special plan for the evening auction of Ming Dynasty artifacts and paintings this season is also to present important works. Drive the market to attach importance to Ming Dynasty artifacts and paintings.

For Christie's innovative attempt, Tibetans from all walks of life also gave considerable support. A total of 17 of the 20 pieces were sold smoothly. The turnover of 131,2897,7299 (the same number of Wechat) amounted to HK$76.26 million, with a turnover rate of 85%. Perhaps influenced by the enthusiasm of "underestimating and overselling" in "Ancient Calligraphy and Painting" on the 27th morning, the Ming Dynasty paintings and calligraphy works also performed well. The most surprising thing is that the price of 8.26 million Hong Kong dollars for "Long Hatred Song-Spring Outing" was more than 10 times the minimum value. When it comes to Ming Dynasty utensils, Ming-style furniture, which was once popular all over the world, can't be absent. Christie's took three pieces of Ming Dynasty Huanghua pear furniture. One pair of Huanghua pear big four cabinets in late Ming Dynasty won HK$14.5 million, which was the third highest price for the night show.
In the 16th century of the Ming Dynasty, the 17th century Dehua White Glaze Crossing Guanyin Elevation was 51.5 cm high at HK$19.3 million.
In recent years, the continued strong Buddhist statue art market has also led to the performance of the last two Ming Dynasty Buddhist statues in this comprehensive auction. In the case of a local gold-bronze statue of Damo in the 16th century of the Ming Dynasty, which started with a bid price of only 800,000 yuan, it was finally traded at 5.5 million hammers with a commission of HK$6.7 million after multi-side saw. This price is nearly seven times higher than its HK$875,000 price in 2013. Another Dehua White Glaze Avalokitesvara statue, as a finale of the competition, was priced at HK$19.3 million, up 9 times compared with London's 1312,000 (then equivalent to HK$1.895 million) in 2005. This Dehua White Glaze Avalokitesvara statue also set a new auction record for Dehua White Porcelain.

The reason why the price is so high is not only its own quality, but also its burner He Chaozhongda. He Chaozhong is the representative figure of Dehua kiln porcelain sculpture and the first person in religious sculpture art. His porcelains are very artistic, not mature works, and never easy to burn. Hence, he Chaozhong's handed down works are few, and most of his works are Buddhist figures such as Damo, Guanyin and Luohan. At the same time, the Dehua ceramic sculpture artists represented by He Chaozhong absorbed the merits of the past dynasties, especially inherited the painting style of the Tang Dynasty, which represented the art of Buddha statues, making the statues of Guanyin and Damo have the charm of the Tang Dynasty. Their images are dignified, solemn, approachable and humane. Therefore, "He Chaozong" 131 2897 7299 (Weixin same name) section of white porcelain in the market is highly sought after.
