Currently on a buying trip in Europe. Just landed in Rome and it is as hot as hell so I decided to go grab a cold beer and people watch for an hour or so at the Piazza Di Navona. On the way I saw a sign for antiques and decided to go take a look. The shop owner had a decent collection of oriental but all a little late for me except for one great piece stuck in the bottom of his cabinet. A very well cast bronze figure of Damo dating to the late Ming period, I bought it instantly. Lets hope this is a sign of things to come on this trip. Cheers Damo…
