This type of work is typical of the Northern Qi period, and most of them are vessels for green-glazed cups from the Northern Qi period. The Northern Qi period was a time when Buddhism was prevalent, and the lotus motif was utilized in wares of various materials, including ceramics. Since ancient times, large-sized wares are often connected with temples. This work may have been one of the pre-Buddhist offerings.

In "Ceramics of the Northern Qi" published by Tokiwayama Bunko, Uragami Sokudo exhibited a similar piece (8z, size 37.9cm) in the 2007 Northern Qi exhibition.

Eternal Dynasties

a Special Exhibition of Northern & Southern Dynasties

The North and South Dynasties (439-589) were a period of chaos and disaster, which not only tested the resilience of human nature, but also gave rise to the birth of top-notch art.

The beauty of the Northern and Southern Dynasties is the beauty of different cultures that blossomed through the fusion and collision of several cultures. The rise of Buddhism led to the popularization of motifs related to Buddhism in China, with the lotus flower, a symbol of Buddhism, often used as the shape and motif of vessels of that period; during which time celadon from the south was also widely accepted in the north. The production of celadon glazes became increasingly widespread in Chinese ceramics, and this was a pivotal era in the history of Chinese art, a time of transition from the past to the present.

The depth and breadth of the fireworks display of different materials in China during this era established the North and South Dynasties as an unassailable part of Chinese art history. Craftsmen resisted the uncertainty time and again with the true beauty of their hearts, and this silent, spiritual power, originating from the resilience of human nature, is so vast and majestic that it penetrates time and shakes the minds of their contempory audiences.

This is undoubtedly an era that deserves to be studied. Through this "Northern and Southern Dynasties Special Exhibition", Lam's Gallery hopes to share with you the different artifacts of this era. We sincerely invite you to embark on a journey of the time and beauty with us through the following website:
