Made for the British aristocracy in Hong Kong during the 18th and 19th centuries, these beautifully crafted game pieces are delicate, one of a kind treasures. Many feature “lace-like” cut-outs and exquisite hairline engravings.  Motifs include floral delicate lattice patterns and some fully illustrated scenes from daily life at the time of the Imperial Ching Dynasty. Both exotic and elegant, these pieces are fashioned from “Dinner Plate” mollusks, that have now been extinct for over 100 years.

Live Music & Culture

Posted in All Entries at 4:33 pm by Lea

The SF Bay Area is known for its culturally diverse music scene, come out and support local DJs and bands. Live music is where its at and these are our picks for the weekend. Get down with the get down – we’ll see you on the dancefloor!

 

cityrootspt21.jpg CITY ROOTS is a collaboration
 between three local Bay Area bands ( BAYONICS,
 MANICATO, KAPAKAHI ) along with SAMPLE THISS
 PRODUCTIONS and DEEP CITY ROOTS as their promoters.
 This collaboration was originally started to bring
 back the essence and spirit of live music and creative
 DJ’s that has become a rarity in the mainstream club
 scene.  It has also developed into a way in which
 bands from across the state and possibly the nation
 can show case their talents in the Bay Area.  CITY
 ROOTS is held on the first Friday of every month at ELRINCON (16th&Harrison)  in the Mission District of San Francisco.
