Chinese American Collectors to Boycott French Auctioneer

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Feb 26, 2009

ALHAMBRA, Calif. Christies auctioneer put on public sale early this week a Chinese cultural relic, the oversized bronze rat-head and rabbit-head shaped sculptures that invading western troops took from a Chinese imperial garden in Beijing during World War II. Dezhao Zhou, director of the Chinese American Professional Collectors Association, said although the sculptures are not the most valuable among the many Chinese antiques scattered around the world, they symbolize Chinas national shame and Christies auctioning of them has deeply hurt the Chinese. The association and the Eastern Cultural Foundation are calling on all collectors to stop doing business with Christies, reports the Sing Tao Daily.
