Oskar Werner Autograph: Signed Photo. CoA

Oskar Werner Autograph: Signed Photo. CoA: “Oskar Werner Autograph: Signed Photo. CoA

Size: 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Fine condition.

The autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Oskar Werner was 18 years old when he made his stage bow at the Burgtheater in Wien.

He was a lifelong pacifist, a pure, traditional mime, a gifted reciter.

 

Oskar Werner Autograph

“Werner’s definitive screen performance was the romantic intellectual Jules in Francois Truffaut’s Jules et Jim (1962), though it was his portrayal of the philosophical Dr. Schumann in Ship of Fools (1965) that earned the actor his only Oscar nomination. His friendship with Truffaut soured after their second collaboration, Fahrenheit 451 (1967); exhibiting profound disillusionment, Truffaut complained (not without justification) that Werner had become a ‘cold’ performer.

Oskar Werner died at the age of 62, just before he was scheduled to deliver a lecture at a German drama club”. “

China. Antique Bodhisattva Bronze.

collect.at Antiques and unique Collectibles China. Antique Bodhisattva Bronze.: “China, Qing Dynasty: Bronze Figur of a meditating Bodhisattva. Ca. 18.-19. century. Partly gilded.

 

Antique Bodhisattva Bronze

1.9 x 3.1 x 1.4 inches. Bottom pane missing ( if there ever one existed ).

In Mahayana Buddhism, a bodhisattva has the compassionate determination to aid all beings on their quest for the highest state of development, full enlightenment of a Buddha. This type of motivation is known as bodhicitta (‘citta’ means mind).

Remaining in this world of uncontrolled rebirth (samsara), the Bodhisattva has taken the bodhisattva vow to achieve Buddhahood as quickly as possible and thereby be most able to teach Dharma until all beings have likewise achieved enlightenment.”
