A Wonderful Gift

Era: 

  • 1982 - 2000
  • sculpture with antlers

    This tomb guardian was one of the objects purchased with the Levy gift.

Herman Hertzog Levy leaves $15 million for the purchase of Chinese bronzes, jades, ceramics, and sculpture. He has already donated many marvellous objects from his own collections. One interesting proviso is that the funds must be spent within 5 years, and so the curators he trusted are able to bid at auction for what is most needed to fill out our holdings - not an everyday ocurrence at the ROM!
