The upcoming Chinese New Year farewells the Year of the Rooster and warmly welcomes the Year of the Dog.
To celebrate the occasion, the Parnell Business Association has put together a wonderful exhibition event and we have been selected to host one of the unique pieces that make up the Year of the Dog auction.
Our gorgeous one-of-a-kind piece is 'Howling Celestial Dog' by Eric Ngan. In Chinese mythology, there is a dog named Xiao Tian Quan (literally Howling Celestial Dog). He is the trusted and most loyal companion to the Chinese God, Er Lang Shen.
Xiao Tian Quan is a heavenly warrior, therefore is represented by wearing a protective battle cloak. His fur is awash in heavenly clouds and his feet are astride the mountain ranges. His belly is tatooed with Taotie mask - which has the power to ward off magical attacks. His eyes are a galaxy of stars as he gazes into eternity.
The artist is Erig Ngan, a visual artist by trade and event producer by profession.
Online bidding will start on 16 February and will close on 4 March 2018, and the all pieces that contribute to Year of the Dog exhibition will be part of an exciting live auction on 8 March. All proceeds from all auctions will go towards the Starship Foundation.
We will update our Facebook page with details as the auction commences and continues. In the meantime, please click here for more information.
