Tea Auction, Festival & Topiary
Artdaily.org reports that Christie’s is opening the series of Asian Art Sales at Rockefeller Center with Art for the Way of Tea, a unique sale completed devoted to tea-ceremony related items. There will be 40 lots auctioned off and the total tab is expected to top out at around 3 million dollars. In other words, this is not an auction for the faint of wallet.
If you missed the recent tea festival in Hangzhou, in East China's Zhejiang Province, don't despair. People's Daily Online recently posted a selection of excellent photos here.
Speaking of tea photos, here's a larger version of the tea-shaped topiary shown here. The Lipton Tree was designed by an Egyptian agency called JWT Cairo, who won the Outdoor category at the Dubai Lynx Middle East & North Africa Advertising Awards.
