NEW YORK---Bonhams saw an international community of collectors competing for top-quality treasures during its week of Asian art sales in New York, September 13-14. Primarily drawn from several superior private collections, the works were curated by Bonhams’ expert team of Asian specialists with a discerning focus on the current interests of Asian art collectors. Notable among the top lots sold were the powerful 15th-century Tibetan sculpture of Gayadhara, achieving $209,000, as well as a superb 14th/15th-century Tibetan Buddha and prabhamandala (above), which brought $185,000.
