Size: 8,5 x 6,5 x 3 inches.

Marie-Louise Sarre lived in Berlin before World War II. Her friends called her “Puppi,” meaning “small doll” in German. She didn’t have much of a doll when she became active in the German resistance against Hitler. In the summer of 1944 she was involved in a scheme to secure the support of none other than Heinrich Himmler in a plan to assassinate Hitler.

After the failed coup attempt of July 20, 1944, she and many others were arrested and imprisoned by the Gestapo. She managed to escape and fled to Ascona, Switzerland, where she lived until her death at age 95, in 1999.

Her father was Friedrich Sarre, the first director of the Department of Islamic Art at the Kaiser Friedrich Museum (today’s Bode Museum) in Berlin. Her maternal grandfather was Carl Humann, the discoverer and excavator of the Pergamum Altar in Turkey in the 1880s.

Her father also was member of The Solf Circle (German: Solf-Kreis) which was an informal gathering of German intellectuals involved in the resistance against Nazi Germany. Most members were arrested and executed after attending a tea party held near Heidelberg on September 10, 1943, at the residence of Elisabeth von Thadden. The group’s downfall also ultimately led to the demise of the Abwehr in February 1944.

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.”

There a holes at the bottom side where the figurine is fixed to the base plate.

One of the bolts is a little loose and should be replaced to make it stable again. As it are screws with US winding (inches) I cannot get one here to replace it. If not replaced it is stable too, just not as stable as before.

The figurine has not been cleaned and there is only moderate patina.

It looks great and stands out.
