Phoenix Ancient Art, one of the world's leading dealers in rare and exquisite antiquities recently hosted a gallery exhibition highlighting eight works of art from their recent publication "CRYSTAL 8."
Hicham Aboutaam, president of Electrum, the exclusive agent for Phoenix, commented: "We are very excited to have exhibited these eight masterworks of ancient art. The number 8 is considered the luckiest number in China and we are pleased to have brought that lucky fortune to New York with this gallery event."
The highlight of the show was a magnificent 7,000-year-old marble "idol" from Neolithic Europe. The exquisite composition of this masterpiece is breathtaking from every angle. Sculpted from a perfect block of white marble, the eye is immediately drawn to the contrast between the lower and upper portions of the piece and the seamless flow of the sculptor's hand.
The event, which also featured wine by Château Beychevelle and champagne by Dom Pérignon, took place at Electrum's gallery at 47 East 66th St. in New York between Oct. 26 until Oct. 31.
