19th C. Russian Icon - Beheading of John the Baptist

**Originally Listed At $1400**Eastern Europe, Russia, ca. 19th century CE. A beautiful icon, finely delineated in egg tempera and gold leaf on wood, venerating John the Baptist. The composition of this image flows in a wonderful rhythm that tells the narrative - from the left depicting King Herod about to behead John the Baptist, underscored by the diagonal of the sword, to the right where John the Baptist's head is presented on a platter to the king's daughter Salome who stands before a doorway to her opulent abode. Surrounding the scene is a striking strapwork border in red, black, green, and gold. Size: 10.5" W x 12.25" H (26.7 cm x 31.1 cm)According to the Bible, King Herod's daughter Salome requested Saint John the Baptist's beheading. The heinous act was prompted by her mother, Herodias, who sought revenge, because the prophet had condemned her incestuous marriage to Herod. Also referred to as the Angel of the Desert (because he was a preacher and hermit in the southern desert of Judea), the forerunner of Christ, the last of the Old Testament prophets, and the first saint, John the Baptist is one of the most popular and venerated figures in Orthodox hagiography. Depicted next to Christ and his mother, John the Baptist also occupies a coveted position in the Deesis tier of the iconostasis.Icons (icon means "image" in Greek) are sacred objects within the Eastern Orthodox Christian tradition. Found in homes as well as churches, these painted images depict holy persons and saints as well as illustrate scenes from the Scriptures. Icons are not worshiped, but are instead venerated for their ability to focus the power of an individual's prayer to God. As such they are truly "windows into heaven."

1887 Muybridge Collotype, "Jumping a Hurdle"

Eadweard Muybridge (American born in England, 1830-1904), "Jumping A Hurdle, Saddle, Preparing for the Leap, Daisy", plate 637 from "Animal Locomotion." Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania, 1887. A spectacular collotype of a freeze frame photo sequence by Eadweard Muybridge, a legendary pioneer of motion photography best known for capturing animal and human movements deemed imperceptible to the human eye (see more in extended description below). This piece depicts 20 consecutive freeze frame photographs of a gentleman riding a horse down a track and over a hurdle before a row of twenty cameras placed precisely at a right angle to the mare's path. To make these exposures, Muybridge used electromagnetic shutters that sequentially fired through a clock-driven electrical device. Size: plate 14.375" L x 19.25" W (36.5 cm x 48.9 cm); sheet 19" L x 24" W (48.3 cm x 61 cm)Eadweard Muybridge is widely considered to be one of the most influential photographers in the study of motion. The English born Muybridge traveled to California around 1852. His early romantic views of the West gained him enough acclaim to be appointed the Director of Photographic Surveys for the United States government. Because the capturing of these grand western vistas required Muybridge to use huge glass collodion-treated plates, he was approached by ex-California governor Leland Stanford to photograph his beloved horse. The principal purpose was to settle a wager based on the positioning of a horse’s legs in the action of trotting, the question being whether all four hooves came off the ground at the same time. After a few unsuccessful attempts, Muybridge managed to set up a battery of cameras enabling him to record split second movements. His continuing work with animals and models in motion eventually led to his invention of the “zoopraxiscope,” a moving picture machine that showed a rapid succession of images. Throughout the 1880s Muybridge lectured in America and abroad. With the help of Thomas Eakins, he found sponsors at the University of Pennsylvania and there Muybridge continued his work, taking thousands of locomotion studies of men, women, children, animals and birds. The results were published in a epic portfolio of 781 folio prints after his photographs entitled, "Animal Locomotion". Muybridge’s motion studies are considered to be a critical step in the evolution of photography to motion pictures.

Late Olmec / Early Maya Green Jade Figural Pendant
Pre-Columbian, Mexico or Guatemala, Late Olmec to early Mayan, ca. 400 BCE to 1 CE. An impressive figural pendant, finely carved from apple green jade with nice translucency, depicting a Mayan ruler or lord, proudly standing with openwork arms folded across the chest, hands with palms pressed together, and skillfully string-cut facial features upon an expressive visage including wide open coffee-bean shaped eyes, a straight noble nose, and full Olmecoid lips and cheeks, perforated from upper to lower ends for suspension or attachment to clothing. An exquisite apple-green jade figural pendant boasting nice translucency with russet inclusions that add to its aesthetic as well as highly symbolic iconography. Size: 1.625" W x 2.125" H (4.1 cm x 5.4 cm)Just as green jade was reserved for elite Chinese emperors, in Mesoamerica, precious articles made from jade were reserved for royalty. Illustrating this, the Aztec leader Moctezuma gave the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés four jade beads as tribute, noting that each bead was worth two loads of gold. The Spanish conquistadores, however, only longed for gold, dismissing jade treasures as nothing more than lackluster green rocks. Moctezuma was amused by this foolish preference of the Spaniards.
