Statue of Chairman Mao, on sale at AfE London

Chairman Mao Statue on Sale for £500,000 at New London Fair

ExCeL London
Royal Victoria Dock
London, United Kingdom

An almost life size white porcelain statue of Chinese leader Mao Tse Tung goes on sale for £500,000 at a new event, AFE London: Art Antiques Interiors Fair, at ExCeL from 13th - 15th January 2017.

 This historic statue was produced in October 1967 to the order of the Chinese government. It will be shown by Paul Harris Asia Arts. Says Paul: ‘We know that two of these statues were made but there is no trace now of the other one which went to Chinese government offices after completion. This statue of China’s controversial leader, Chairman Mao, may well be unique.

 ‘It is dated October 1967 which was a landmark time for China as the Cultural Revolution was launched. It is a ‘heroic’ interpretation of Mao at the height of his adulation. As such, it is a vitally important historical relic.’

 AFE London: Art Antiques Interiors Fair will become the first major event of the New Year in the art and antiques calendar.   This popular, well-established exhibitions and international convention centre is hosting a major, prestige event of this kind for the first time.

 The fair will bring together a collection of 120 dealers specialising in a diverse range of disciplines n the art, antiques and interiors market. The fair, which follows more than thirty years of the AfE (Antiques for Everyone) marque event running three times a year since 1986 at the NEC, Birmingham.

  The fair will be a professionally presented, fully-standfitted event with exhibits ranging from £10 to £500,00.
