Treasure of the month

In the south of China, around Han dynasty (2-th BC – 2-th AD) the civilization developed pleasantly and we only witness few artifactcs from this time period.

Some copies of the great master painting are the result of the Chinese way of learning by imitation and reproduction.
The funeral furniture pieces you can find in the tombs give us new knowledge of this archaic society.

In Sichuan for instance, chefs, dancing ladies, musicians, treated with realism and a lively style are quite interesting.

Here is is the acrobat theme which was used to make the handle for this cylindrical grey pottery pot.
According to the interpretation of the equilibrists who took heightened risks, the use of well and black water used to create a mirror effect hence doubling the image of the acrobats.

The three feet of this pot are made in form of Taotie mask.
