Art TibetRead more ...
We promised you a second Art Tibet auction... and here it is!
As art plays such a vital role in Tibetan culture, and has long been a powerful tool for social change, it seems fitting that to commemorate 60 years of our work artists have so generously donated their work to support ours.
And this time many more established and emerging artists are involved, including Clive Arrowsmith, Dan Hillier, Tenzing Rigdol, Vinca Petersen, Simon Pearsall and Miranda Argyle, so there really is something for everyone.
You can also bid on a unique print by Hergé. This delightful world map was used to announce a new Tintin adventure in the Belgian newspaper, Le Petit Vingtiéme in 1932, and has been generously donated by The Hergé Foundation and The Tintin Shop.
This auction is an exciting and unique opportunity for you to buy a special piece and help Tibetan communities through the current crisis.
Art Tibet will run from 19 November until 3 December (ending at 9pm), so plenty of time to bid. We were blown away by your response to our first auction and this time thanks to the artists involved there are many more exciting pieces for you to bid on. And if you are looking for the perfect Christmas present (maybe for yourself!) we will do everything possible to get your piece to you before Christmas.
Items do not include postage/delivery. Once the auction has ended we will contact you to arrange the most suitable and convenient delivery method.
Happy bidding and good luck!

1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
