Hollywood Galleries was established by Hon Lau and his wife Ellen Ho in 1985, took its base in the ancient sector of Hollywood road near the Hong Kong Man Mo temple where many of the reputable antique shops are centered. They specialized in Buddhist sculptures, paintings and religious works of art with origins from the Himalayas, India, China, and Southeast Asia spanning from 12th to 19th century. Their major expertise is on Tibetan gilt bronze sculptures working in collaboration with private collectors and museums in China and overseas. Their legacy in the art world goes back to the 70's with Hon's father's initiation which set his foundation and inspirations for the next generation. The family business has since been passionately endeavored and continuously extended.

Hon Lau, Ellen Ho, & Andrew Lau
Antiques are commonly presented as standalone pieces today, yet much of their intrinsic value originates from their historical context, the setting within which they were originally positioned. This interactive talk will discuss how objects such as the vajra, phurbu, skull bowl, skull mala beads, hand drums and tiger rugs were used as ritual implements in traditional practice and portrait of important Tibetan lamas of past eras, regarded as the spiritual guides to Enlightenment. An altar will be set-up to show the audience how these objects would have been place and handled. Andrew Lau, honed his interest in Tibetan art from a young age, where he was surrounded by these mysterious objects in his parents’ gallery, Hollywood Galleries. Lau specializes in Himalayan and Chinese Buddhist art, and is keep to introduce this category to a younger generation.
