"In Meditation" (2012) is a phenomenal bronze with gold leaf sculpture by world renown Contemporary Chinese artist Xie Ke (Hong Kong, b. 1955). This anonymous youthful sits in a meditative position, palms up, and eyes covered. His miniature figure hovers above the chair as if suspended by supernatural forces of his mind. Xie strategically places Eastern and Western details in his works, capturing the spirit of Contemporary lifestyles. This work is edition 11/50, measuring 13 x 7.08 x 4.72 inches (33 x 18 x 12 cm) and is in excellent condition.

Initially working in graphic design, and extensively traveling internationally, the artist's sculptures reflect current culture and society expressing the changes of major cities like Hong Kong. Xie has exhibited throughout China and abroad in such institutions as the Hong Kong Arts Centre, the Shanghai Contemporary, the Marseilles Art Museum among many others. The artist currently lives and works in Beijing.
