Zisha pottery, thus called after the clay used to carve it, was a much admired art in China among literary figures in the Northern Song dynasty, as Mei Yaochen (1002-1060), and Chen Mingyuan was a great master of Zisha pottery. This exhibition, presented by the Shangai Museum and the Art Museum, and The Chinese University of Hong Kong, is a beautiful display of the most beautiful artifacts of Zisha Pottery. Some historical and other details complete the lavish photographs to create a thoroughly documented, enjoyable piece of art literature.

Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs. Includes two forewords, three essays, a list of exhibits, two appendices, and a full Chinese-English translation.
