Description: Iron jasper2.500 million years BCUnique large bowlOn tripod standDimensions: height incl. stand 30 cm, diameter bowl 16 cm Weight of the ball: 6 kgVery good conditionCabinets of curiosities followed the principle that the world could be contained inside a single roomObject is regular taxed. 19% VAT is added to the purchase price for deliveries within the EU.This is a unique large bowl of iron jasper. The stone originates from the early days of life on earth and aroused around 3 billion years ago. The stone and the color structure are in extremely evenly ring structure. The surface is polished. When Stromatolithen (prehistoric or blue algae), as first living creatures, around 3.5 billion years ago in the Archean (Precambrian) began through their metabolism to release oxygen into earth's atmosphere, the until now free iron was confronted with a radical - it oxidized and rusted. It deposited in layers over time, building the banded iron ores today (hematite deposits). These have received their own name 'Banded Iron Formation' (BIF). Such BIFs are worldwide an indication for primitive series of rocks and are mostly between 2 and 33 billion years old. The gemstone can be found is Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, India as well as in Europe in England and Norway.The iron jasper bowl is in very good condition. The bowl is placed on a tripod stand. Including the stand it is 30 cm tall and the bowl alone is 16 cm in diameter. The weight of the bowl is 6 kg. (tm) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

Berlin, Germany

Estimated Price: €800 - €1,000

Description: Copperplate map, colored in outlines on laid/wove paper (watermark paw cross in wreath and writing)France, Paris, 1786Robert de Vaugondy (1688-1766) - French cartographerPublisher: Charles Francois Delamarche (1740-1817) - Founder of the important and prolific Paris based Maison Delamarche map publishing firm in the late 18th centuryTitle: 'Mappe-Monde dressée suivant les nouvelles relations et assujettie aux observations astronomiques'Hand-written inscribed below in pencil 'Robert de Vaugondy anno 1780'World map in two hemispheresAdvertisement in the lower cartouche Dimensions: map approx. 46.4 x 73.4 cm; sheet approx. 49.5 x 75.6 cmGood conditionPretty map of the world with Captain James Cook's discoveries in Australia and New Zealand, unknown in the map's early editionsThis is de Vaugondy's well-known double-hemisphere world map in its almost final form, published by Delamarche. Captain James Cook's discoveries in Australia and New Zealand, unknown in the map's early editions, are shown, without mention or even evidence of the Englishman's tracks - only Abel Tasman's traces are seen near New Zealand. An advertisement in the lower cartouche indicates that the details for the Southern Hemisphere were made available by the Duc De Croy in 1774. The South Pacific also shows an interesting feature in that the stippled outlines of the European antipodean coastlines are indicated. Pedley's listing of Vaugondy maps indicates that she was unable to examine this edition of the map - indicative of its relative scarcity.The map is hand-written inscribed below in pencil 'Robert de Vaugondy anno 1780'. The overall optic impression of the map is good, there are some small creased marks and marginal tears. The paper is toned and shows foxing verso. Parts of the green outlines have been newly colored. The dimensions of the map are approximately 46.4 x 73.4 cm and the sheet measures approximately 49.5 x 73,4 cm. The total dimensions, including the frame, are 65 x 90 cm.(tm) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

Description: Whale boneSkull with snakesDimensions: 8 x 10 cmVery good conditionImpressing Memento Mori carving of fossil boneThis item can only be delivered to an address within the EU'Teach us to number our days, That we may present to You a heart of wisdom' (Psalm 90:12). Death is an outsider in our today's society, an unloved marginal figure. We live in the belief of the idea that we could outwit nature and strive for eternal life. Clerical life had almost come to a standstill in the 'dark Middle Ages' (9th C.), which inside the church led to strive after asceticism and the cleaning of anything secular and ruinous. The result were also the foundation of many cloisters and was connected to a certain mysticism, which is still felt today in the walls of a cloister. The heaped appearance of the Black Death in the 14th and 15th century led again to an enforcement of the Memento Mori thought. Dances of the death, death sculptures, changing heads and skulls found entrance into the prayers and mediations about life and death. The confrontations with death and the consciousness of the transience of the earthly were supposed to animate a more god-fearing life.The skull is in very good condition.

Desmond Carrick RHA (1928-2012) SPRING IN SOUTH ISLAND, NEW ZEALAND

Lot 133: Desmond Carrick RHA (1928-2012) SPRING IN SOUTH ISLAND, NEW ZEALAND

by Whyte's

December 6, 2014, 12:00 PM GMT

Dublin, Ireland

Estimated Price: €300 - €400

Description: Desmond Carrick RHA (1928-2012) SPRING IN SOUTH ISLAND, NEW ZEALAND watercolour signed lower left; titled on artist's label on reverse; WCSI exhibition label on reverse h:11.50  w:16.25 in. Provenance: The Artist's Estate Exhibited: Water Colour Society of Ireland Annual Exhibition 2009, catalogue no. 31 Desmond Carrick was elected a member of the RHA in 1968 and became one of the institution's most eminent and active members. For forty-four years his paintings were a familiar sight on the academy walls, particularly during the annual exhibitions. His role as secretary for the academy in the late 1970s saw his skills as an administrator come to the fore and he played a crucial role in facilitating the transformation of the old academy site into the modern space it is today. He sat on various academy committees and was central to the process of electing new members, as well as the coordination of the annual show, in which he exhibited since 1951. Carrick's journey towards becoming an artist was gradual. He followed in his father's footsteps with a career in the Guinness brewery from 1945 but pursued his interest in art through classes at NCAD where Seán Keating and Maurice MacGonigal (both past presidents of the RHA) were his tutors. He won the coveted Taylor Scholarship in 1956; a prize which facilitated a trip to Spain and ignited a lifelong passion for light and colour. Often in the company of fellow academian James Nolan, he would continue this pursuit in weekend trips around Dublin and to the West of Ireland and later with regular trips to Spain and France. While continuing to work in Guinness (he remained with the brewery until 1977) his talents as an artist were recognised. Bryan Guinness, later Lord Moyne, director of the brewing company, became a patron and he was commissioned to paint a large mural depicting the brewing process for the company's visitor centre in 1958. In the late 1950s Carrick designed and constructed his own home and studio at Killakee. He married Deirdre Mellett in 1967 and together they enjoyed life in the picturesque surroundings of the Dublin Mountains. After his retirement from Guinness, the couple spent part of the year abroad in Southern Spain and in France. Much of the work painted on these sojourns was later submitted for exhibition in the RHA annual show or in various exhibitions with the Dublin Painters Gallery, Ritchie Hendriks Gallery, IELA, Oireachtas among others. In 2009 Gandon Editions published a profusely illustrated text on Carrick's life and career, The Lie of the Land. This brought to light his journey and celebrated the diversity of his skills as an artist in oil, watercolour, sculpture and stained glass.
