History of Chinese Funerary Ceramics 

The Neolithic Period   Jar   Late Yangshao period – Banshan type  c.2500 – 2000 BC   earthenware, pigments   Gift to the National Collection of Asian Art from Dr TT Tsui LLD JP, of the Tsui Art Foundation, HK, through the National Gallery of Australia Foundation 1995    

The Neolithic Period
c.10000 to 1500 BC

Much of our knowledge of Chinese cultural history is based on material found in ancient burial sites. The extensive array of objects which have been unearthed from tombs and graves provide a fascinating insight into life in ancient China. Some of the earliest evidence of civilisation in China dates from the Neolithic period.

There were two predominating cultures during this time: the Yangshao culture based in the central plain region and the Longshan culture centred around northern Shantung and the eastern seaboard. The excavation of burial sites reveal that even then death was accompanied by ritual. Bodies were buried with food containers and other possessions, presumably to assist the smooth passage of the dead to the next world.

Since the first unearthing in 1922 of neolithic artefacts at a cemetery site near Lanzhou, evidence of Yangshao culture has been found throughout an extensive area in central and northwest China including the provinces of Shaanxi, Henan and Hebei. Later remains have been found in the northwest provinces of Gansu and Qinghai.

The Yangshao culture is divided into 3 phases – Maijiayao (c.3,000–2,500 BC), Banshan (2500–2000 BC) and Machang (2200–1500 BC). Artefacts from each neolithic era are usually identified by the type of decoration found on the objects.

Shang Dynasty – Zhou dynasty
c.16th to 11th centuries BC – c.1050 to 221 BC 

By the Shang Dynasty there were well ordered rituals associated with burial, and belief in the power of gods and spirits played an important cultural role. Excavations of burial chambers have uncovered a wealth of funerary goods including bronze vessels, jade ornaments, weapons and most importantly, human sacrifices, often on a large scale. People and animals were often buried alive with the deceased emperor – battle chariots with their horses and human drivers have been discovered buried with their masters.

It is now better understood that the zoomorphic designs found on the magnificent metal vessels and ornaments and the intricate carvings on precious stones relate to Shang practices of consulting oracles, and their beliefs in auspicious signs and symbols. Before making important decisions such as when to plant crops or go into battle or even for more trivial matters such as whether the king would enjoy the day, the oracles would be read. The four cardinal points had great importance and were associated with the Ruler of the Four Quarters and the Eastern and Western Mothers. The sun and the dragon were allied with the east and the moon and the tiger with the west. South was often represented by the ‘red bird’ or phoenix while north was the direction of death.

In subsequent dynasties death rituals followed similar patterns until the time of the great Chinese philosopher, Confucius (551–479 BC), whose teachings would have a fundamental influence on all future Chinese religious and philosophical beliefs. Human sacrifices were greatly frowned upon by Confucius who promoted humanity as a moral virtue. However, the deeply held beliefs that ancestral spirits needed worldly trappings to ensure their comfort in the next life led people to craft figurative substitutes in the form of life-like sculptures which were buried in the tombs. Called mingqi, ‘spirit wares’, their manufacture eventually became a full-scale industry overseen by the government

 

Because of this the decorative artsDecorative Art are actually quite powerful, determining where the scenes in your life take place. Just imagine a movie. The setting determines the action, and it is quite easy to tell in most movies where the bad guy lives, or when two people enter a romantic room. The subtle details of a scene will often set the stage for how interactions will take place.

Decorating is an art that involves not only visual elements, but also texture, aroma, and even the ineffable feeling of ambiance. As such it is actually quite a complex undertaking. It is also a powerful skill which allows you to control the energy of interactions within a space, coloring the thoughts and perceptions of the people, and how they behave when relating to one another. For these reasons the decorative arts are actually one of the most important and potent disciplines in the creative world

(1)
Chinese Poem Calligraphy

the poem on plate number 2697 is the first four lines of a related but later poem called “Return to Chibi” that was written by a later Ming Dynasty poet.

The first four lines of the later poem, as they appear on plate number 2697 are as follows:

 

五百年來续此游, Five Hundred years on, the journey continues,

水光依旧接天浮 , Glittering water still meets the floating sky in the far horizon,

徘徊今夜东山月, Loitering tonight under the moon (2)  of the Eastern Mountain,

恍惚当年壬戌秋 , The sentiment seemingly as if it was in the autumn of 1082. (3)

The complete poem has another four lines which, in English translates approximately to:

 

Have a friend to catch fishes, down Red Cliff.

Nobody is to carry wine, out of sandbar of yellow.

Now myself, the riverside and thousands of mountains, all in silence.

A lonely crane is crossing the water, just above the little boat. (4) 

these poets met one another and wrote poems back and forth??):

 

 Li Po, Tu Fu, and Su Tung-po!

在山上飲酒
山花兒開在我們的臉上。
三重,你和我都迷失在酒。
我喝醉了,我的朋友,昏昏欲睡。上升和去。
隨著黎明琵琶,回來,如果你願意,並留

Drinking in the Mountains

Mountain flowers open in our faces.
You and I are triply lost in wine.
I’m drunk, my friend, sleepy. Rise and go.
With your dawn lute, return, if you wish, and stay.

 

~Li Po

 

山東杜甫
你問我怎麼花我的時間
我偎依著樹幹
聽秋風
在松樹白天和黑夜。
山東酒不能讓我醉了。
當地詩人生了我。
我的想法仍然和你在一起,
溫江一樣,無休止地流淌

To Tu Fu from Shantung

You ask how I spend my time–
I nestle against a tree trunk
and listen to autumn winds
in the pines all night and day.

Shantung wine can’t get me drunk.
The local poets bore me.
My thoughts remain with you,
like the Wen River, endlessly flowing.
~Li Po

 

Bio: Li Bai‘s (Aka Li Po) birthplace is Chu, Kazakhstan. Another candidate is Suiye in Central Asia (near modern-day Tokmok, Kyrgyzstan). However his family had originally dwelt in what is now southeastern Gansu, and later moved to Jiangyou, near modern Chengdu in Sichuan province, when he was five years old. At the age of ten, his formal education started. Among various schools of classical Chinese philosophies, Taoism was the deepest influence, as demonstrated by his compositions. In 720, he was interviewed by Governor Su Ting, who considered him a genius. From: Poemhunter.com

滿月
上述塔 – 一個孤獨的兩倍大小的月亮。
晚上在冰冷的河水通過填充的家園,
它在波浪散射不安分的黃金。
墊子上,令人眼前一亮比絲綢紗布豐富。
空峰,沉默:在稀疏的星星,
尚未有缺陷的,它漂移。松樹和肉桂
蔓延在我的舊花園。 。 。所有的光,
所有萬英里一次在它的光!

Full Moon

Above the tower — a lone, twice-sized moon.
On the cold river passing night-filled homes,
It scatters restless gold across the waves.
On mats, it shines richer than silken gauze.

Empty peaks, silence: among sparse stars,
Not yet flawed, it drifts. Pine and cinnamon
Spreading in my old garden . . . All light,
All ten thousand miles at once in its light!

~Tu Fu

Bio: Most of what is known of Du Fu’s (Aka Tu Fu) life comes from his own poems. His paternal grandfather was Du Shenyan, a noted politician and poet during the reign of Empress Wu.

He was born in 712 in Gong county, near Luoyang, Henan province…In the autumn of 744 he met Li Bai (Li Po) for the first time, and the two poets formed a somewhat one-sided friendship: Du Fu was by some years the younger, while Li Bai was already a poetic star. We have twelve poems to or about Li Bai from the younger poet, but only one in the other direction.

 They met again only once, in 745. From: Poemhunter.com

 

追憶
什麼可以比喻我們地球上的生命?
一群鵝,
在雪地上下車。
有時留下了他們的流逝的痕跡

 

Remembrance

To what can our life on earth be likened?
To a flock of geese,
alighting on the snow.
Sometimes leaving a trace of their passage.

~Su Tung-po

Thoughts of Li Po from the World’s End

Here at the world’s end the cold winds are beginning to blow. What messages
have you for me, my master? When will the poor wandering goose arrive? The
rivers and lakes are swollen with autumn’s waters. Art detests a too successful
life; and the hungry goblins await you with welcoming jaws. You had better have
a word with the ghost of that other wronged poet. Drop some verses into the
Mi-lo as an offering to him!

Chenghua 1465-1487It is thought that during the Chenghua period there were only one calligrapher writing all marks on all official porcelains. I am not sure we can assume that, regardless of what the mark looks like. In the early 1990’s I discussed this with Liu Xinyuan head of the excavations in Jingdezhen at this time, while spending some time studying their finds. He told the reason why the Chenghua mark looks like it does – in his opinion – was because the original mark was written by the emperor while he was quite young, and his handwriting was not so good. Whatever the case is, the Chenghua mark is inelegant, thick, often imbalanced and immature. Some common characteristics of the Chenghua porcelain mark by whatever hand but true to the period: 1)  First character “Great” – the beginning of the second stroke seldom extends much beyond the first stroke, looking stubby, but when it occasionally does the beginning is fat; third and final stroke ends thickly.2)  
2) Third character “Cheng” – the third stroke descending is not curved but straight and vertical.
3) Fifth character “Nian” – the character is unusually squat and square.
4) Last (sixth) character “Zhi” – the ninth stroke does not extend beyond the standing knife (li-dao) radical.
5) The final “tails” on most characters (e.g. last stroke of “cheng”, third stroke of “hua”) are abrupt and sharp, like fish hooks.
6) The surrounds when square are thick with ink at each right angle.
7) The mark in general is faintly obscured, as if covered with a thin haze

 4) Mark And Symbols on Ceramic

(illustration from literatures not upload)

The Jiajing period also saw the emergence of blue and white wares manufactured in Zhangzhou region. 

Many different marks can be found on Chinese porcelain.

Imperial Nien Hao

 Best known are the Imperial marks that occur on pieces for the court and related institutions since the early Ming period (1368–1644).

 

They usually consist of six characters

(sometimes four)

 in two rows that read from right to left and from top to bottom.

The first two characters indicate the dynasty (for instance Da Ming, the great Ming dynasty(illustration Not Upload)

2010371 Imperial reign mark: Da Qing Kang xi nian zhi. (Made during the Kangxi period of the Great Qing dynasty).

2010371 Imperial reign mark: Da Qing Kang xi nian zhi. (Made during the Kangxi period of the Great Qing dynasty).

Other character marks

(using 1 to 10 characters; over 2500 different marks are known) and seal marks may have many different meanings: a wish for good luck, a date, a quality comparison (for instance, the character yu means ‘jade’, an owner or factory, a recommendation, or an indication for use by a specific person or in a specific setting.

Furthermore, emblems or symbols are used as marks: a lotus flower, a heron (the ‘stork’ on Kraak porcelain), a hare, a plum blossom, a bat, etc. They symbolise happiness, prosperity, a long life and other good wishes. The ‘Eight Buddhist’ and the ‘Eight Daoist’ symbols have a similar meaning, as do the ‘Eight Precious Objects’.

Individual potter’s marks are very rare on Jingdezhen porcelain, but they occur much more frequently on Dehua (blanc de chine) and Yixing pieces. Marks are usually found on the bottom of a piece, sometimes on the edge, or in the centre.

A. The Chinese Ethnic History of Fish
1.Fish forms an important part in the domestic economy of the Chinese. Together with rice ir constitutes the principal staple of their daily food, and fisihing has for this reason formed a prominent occupation of the people from the most ancient times. The commonest kind of fish that serve as food in China are the carp,perch,plaice, whitevfish, blue fish, mullet,pmfret, Sciaenidae fish, rock trout,sabbard fish etc. for more info read the vintage book The Ningpo Fishere,in the New China Review,1919,vol IV,pp 385.
2.From the aesthetic point of view Fish are also much appreciated by the Chinese. Many beautiful and fantastic varietes of fish are reared in ponds and jars, this ornamental species having been introduced into Europe toward the end of the 17th century.
Carp and Perch are frequently depitched on Chinese Porcelain. (look at the Rare Carps fish on Yuan celadon bigger Plate)
3. Yhe legendary Emperor Fu Hsi (2953-2838 BC) is said t have given his name, which means literally HIdden Victims, on account of the fact that he made different kinds ofnets and taught his people how to snare animals and secure the products of the se.
4. Fish Symbol of Wealth
The fish is symbolically employed as the emblem of WEalth r abundance, on account of the similary in the pronouncation of the word Yu,fish and yu,superfluity, and also because the fish are extremely plentiful in Chinese water.
5. Fish symbol of regeration
owing to its reproductive power it is a symbol of regenations.
6. Fish Symbol of harmony and connubial bliss
As Fish is happy in its own element of sphere, so fish has has come t be the emblem f harmny and connubial bliss.

7.A pair of fish is emblematic of the joys of union
A brace of fish is presented amongst other articles as a betrothal gift to the family of the bride-elect on accunt of its auspiciuos significantce; as fish are reputed to swim in pairs, so a pair of fish is emblematic of the joys of union, especially of a sexual nature.

8.Fish is also one of the Charm to avert devil and symbol of Buddha fully emancipated.
it is also one of the Charms to avert evil, and is included among the auspicious sign on the footprints of Buddha. The fish signifies freedom form all restraints. as in water a fish move easily in any direction, so in the buddha-state the fully-emancipated knows no restraint or obstruction.

9. The Carp fish as the symbol of perseverance
The carp,with its scaly armour, which is regarded as a symbol of martial attributes, is admires becausu fish struggles against the current, and it has therefore became the emblem of perseverance.

10. The Fish transformed into dragons
The sturgeon of the Yellow river are said to make an ascent of the stream in the third moon of each year, when these which succeed inpassing above the rapids hence this fish is a symbol of Lung-men becme transformed int dragons; hence this fish is a symbol of literary eminence passing examinations with the distinction.
If the Fish have 300 scales, it will transfrmed to Dragon or be get the dragon, nly the turtle can prtect it.
(I have the bigger plate with decrations fish transfrmed to dragon, and will installed at The Rare Ming Imperail Dragn five clown ceramic)

11. The Fish legend of Po Ku TU
According to the Po KU Tu, fish are compared to a king’s subject, and the art of angling to that fo ruling. Thus an unskilled angler will catch the fish,or will a tactless prince win over his peple. on account of various legend that letters have been fund in the bellies of carps etc, the fish is also emblem of epistolary correspondence.

12 The Chinese phillosophy of Fish and catching fish.
If you a fish to someone, he will eat fish only one day, but if you teach them how to get the fish, they will eat fish everydays.
this mean donnot give a materia t smeone because he will used that material or money only until off, but if you teach them how to mede or get the material or Money they will find every days.

 

B. The Chinese Lucky Fengsui of Fish

1. In the Chinese bigger party, Fish must exist as the foods, but if at that area didnt have fish, the Fish must be the decorations.because a pair of fish is the emblem of joy union. The fish als gave wealthy fengsui, that is why carps in china was called Lei-Yu ,the prnuncatins like ‘Have the property of wealthy’.

2. In the Temple Fish statue put on the roof in order to prtect the temple from burning.

3. In the House better to have the Fish statue because, the fish will gave the owner the Wealth or much money .

4. The Fish especially the red gold arawana fish in aquarium will gave the owner healthy long life and wealthy.

5. The Chinese Newyear card with The Carp leaping the gate in order to transforme as the dragon, this is the emblem of the god day.

6.The Carps had associated with the Art and science ancetors because that ancetors always rides the Fish-dragon, that is why the Chinese always want to be the scientist because the Schlar have the highest rank, honorable and will be the famous human.(this is the Confusius phillosophies, that is why many Chinese always studies along his live )

Emperor,Scholar,Artisan,Monk,London,1984,no. 69,notes that “few blue and white porcelain seals are published or recorded“. He goes on to quote the 16th century expert,Kan Yang,that because of the hardness of porcelain it is difficult to carve a seal,and consequently the characters are coarse. They usually have tortoise,roof-tile and ’nose-shaped’ knops. A blue and white example with a roof-tile knop,bearing a Xuande mark and cyclically dated to 1433,was sold in our London rooms,16 October 1969,lot 45,and was later sold at Doyle,New York,The F.

Tiger Zodiac Motif 

. THE HISTORTY OF CULTURAL ART OF TIGER
(Compile from many Vintage book by Dr Iwan S.)

1. Tiger were very common in ancient times, and are still to be found circa 1974 Quantung ,Quan-shi .Fuk-ien .Qiangshi and Manchuria. The largest runs to 12 feet in length (no info today).

2. The Tigers stripes written in China as the radical Hu, and the tiger form with the legs like human being erect written in Vhina as the form of man Jen.
The Tigers strip also meant as the written on the whole body with brown gold color like chinese wriiten the emperor or Wang.

3.The Tiger illustration in China only on the ancien Copper Broonze statue, and some ancient legend pictures of The Chief Tao monk Chang tao-ling ride the tiger. Chang Tao Ling was the 8th chief
of Tao monk circa in the year 200 BC as the member of the first Han emperor government below Chan Liang, and after Chang become emperor.
Chang Liang have long life 123 years, because he drink the water of persist Lifes and the chinese people believed that Chang Tao -Ling have the power to send to earth the City goddest and to control the Neraka (hell) guard.The monk used amulet wit his written name to scarring the devila. Every year in the 5th day of the 5th Month(May.5th) there were the special celebrities for him in other to destroy Devil and and protect the people life.

4. Beside Chang Tao-ling, Hsuan Tan Wealthy Goddest
Tsai Shen- the chief of five Wealthy Goddest, he ride the Tiger or he himself image as the tiger.that is why in the 5th day chinese Imlek newyear all the window and doors were open to let Tsai Shen come in the House with her Wealthy blessing, until this day the Indonesia Tioghoa etnic had done that ceromonial in 12.00 PM in the night, especially when there ware rainning days more wealthy Fengsui will come in.

5.The Tiger in china was called the King of the wild beasts, and its real or imaginery qualities afford them matter for more metaphors than any other wild anima. It is taken as the emblem of magisterial dignityvand sternness, as the model for the courage and fierceness which skould characterize a soldier, and its presence or roar is synonymous with denger and terror. Its present scarceness had tended to magnify his prowess, until it has by degrees become invested with so many savage attributes tha nothing can exceed it (My friend had told me that when he hunting the tiger in Sumatra with the Younger man, when he heard the Tiger roar in the night and filled very scarring that his urination on his trousers-Dr Iwan S.)
In the days of Marco Polo, the multitude of tigers in the nothern parts of the empire rendered travelling alone dangerous, the sam situation in Sumatra, I have never travelled in the night around the Tigers area with the special Tiger Road Plague around Lahat-tebing Tinggi-Lubuk Linggau South Sumatra area beside the traditional Robbery Bajing Loncat or the leaping dog in that road that is why many car stopped and rest at Lahat or LubukLinggau.

6. The history of White Tiger
The White Tiger or Pai Hu, is the name given to the Westren quadrant of the Uranosphere and metaphorically to the West in general. The title o White Tiger was bestowe on the canonized Yin Chen-hsiu , a general of the last emperor of the Yin dynasty. His image may be seen at the door of Taoist temples.

II.THE ETHNIC TIONGHOA FENGSUI OF THE TIGER
(compile from many vintage book by Dr iwan S)

1. The God of anti Demon Teror and Military Powers
If the dragon or Chinese Dinosaurus is chief of aquatic creatures, the Tigers were lord of all land animal. These two share the position of prime important in the mtsterious pseudo-science called Feng Shui. The tiger is figure on many of the most ancient bronze ,often with a ring in its mouth. It frequently appears in a groteque form which native archeologist designate a Quadruped.The tiger symbolies military proweres (in Indonesia the symbol WEst Java Military Forces SiliwangI-Dr iwan S). It is an object of special terror to demons , is therefore painted on walls to scare malignant spirits away from the neighbourhood of houses and temples.
