Civilisations and religions

Civilisations and Religions auctions weave an initiatory path through the ceremonial objects of great civilisations.

Religious objects from the three monotheistic faiths originating in the Middle East are presented in these online sales, and include Judaica, Christs, Madonna and Child paintings and Islamic art objects, from Ottoman manuscripts to the Iznik ceramics of present-day Turkey.

Civilisations and Religions online sales also feature much Russian art, from icons of the Novgorod school to masterpieces by the jeweller Pierre Karl Fabergé, supplier to the Russian imperial court in 1884, and creator of the Easter eggs given by Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II to their respective wives.

Ritual American Indian objects, like the Kachina dolls of Arizona's Hopi Indians and works from pre-Columbian civilisations are in the spotlight at Drouot Digital auctions, like these stone figures from Guerrero State in Mexico, which garnered high prices at the 2011 sale of industrialist Henry Law's collection at Drouot. Other lots in the collection included a large seated divinity, the biggest extant full-length Mayan statue, knocked down for €2,912,000. A world record !
