The passion for Asian beauty and history is fulfilled in the art of collecting Asian antiquities, art and antiques. To touch a statue created from third century BC is a thrill beyond measure. To see the intricate brushstroke of a master painter of centuries past. To meditate on the ancient serene features of a stone Buddha once worshipped by tens of thousands. Antique Zen is about sharing these delights. Here you will find not only the most beautiful art and antiques from the orient – but much of the knowledge of treasured ancestors. We are committed to sharing our expertise and will continue to add to this collection of articles – and antiques. We invite you to return monthly.

Antique Zen’s collection is well known among collectors. We collect from around the world, from known collectors, museums and Asian-specialty auction. Our antiques span the ages, from 3rd century BC or BCE (Before Common Era) to most centuries of the Common Era (CE, or AD in classical notations).
