Online auction showcases more than 300 fine examples of ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Near Eastern, Far Eastern, Pre-Columbian and Ethnographic / Tribal Art. All lots legally acquired, legal to sell and guaranteed authentic.

(OPENPRESS) Artemis Gallery LIVE's first auction of 2014, "Ancient, Pre-Columbian & Ethnographic Art," will take bidders on a trip around the world and throughout history, showcasing fine, authentic examples of Classical, Near Eastern, Far Eastern, Pre-Columbian and Tribal Art.

The auction begins with fantastic finds from ancient Egypt, most notably a large Egyptian wood standing male figure (Lot 3), spectacular in size and detail, a colorful fish of Egyptian faience (Lot 13), and a collection of brilliant Egyptian cartonnage panels (Lots 22-24 and 33-34). The elegant artwork of Ancient Greece is represented in part by a magnificent Paestan red figure marriage lekanis (Lot 48). The lekanis, originally purchased from Sotheby's London, features Eros, god of love, with a man and woman, beautifully rendered. A wonderful limestone stele depicting a Roman citizen (Lot 85) adds a deeply personal touch to the stunning array of art from the Classical world.

A delightful collection of Asian art is highlighted by a Han Dynasty duck effigy (Lot 64) of lovely grayware terra-cotta. The details of the beak, tail and webbed feet, along with the corpulent body, make this piece irresistibly charming.

A collection of African tribal art offers a glimpse into the rich history of that continent (Lots 213-215).

The auction also features art of the ancient Americas with impressive offerings of Pre-Columbian art from numerous cultures including the Maya, Olmec and Inca, notably a striking Inca feather headdress (Lot 180) made from brilliantly colored Amazonian bird feathers, and a parade of fine Panamanian/Costa Rican pottery vessels in various shapes and sizes (Lots 154-176).

A group of beautifully painted antique Mexican retablos (Lots 191-206) brings the auction into a slightly more modern era, along with a pair of Civil War bayonets (Lots 194 and 198).

"This first auction of the year will not disappoint," said Dodge. "We are offering authentic examples in every price range. And, as with all our auctions, all items have been legally acquired, are legal to sell and guaranteed to be as described or your money back, so you can bid with complete confidence.

"Join Artemis Gallery LIVE (formerly Antiquities-Saleroom) as they usher in the New Year with a celebration of the new and the very, very old."

The auction will begin at 11 a.m. Eastern, 9 a.m. Mountain Time, on Friday, Jan. 24. For additional information about the auction, call Teresa Dodge directly at 720-502-5289 or send her an email at teresa@artemisgallery.com.
