Charlotte (@charlotte_cornaton), a sculptor and visual artist based in Paris, is our visitor of the week. Before travelling to Hong Kong, she did a residency in a porcelain workshop and worked on calligraphy on porcelain in Jingdezhen, China. Here she is sitting in her favourite gallery, the huanghuali study, with a calligraphy of Tao Te Ching written in seal script. Book your visit now at visitors@liangyimuseum.com!

The Summer Palace in Beijing has a lot of beautiful architecture and nature within it. I wonder how this place functioned when the emperor was the owner. #beijing #summerpalace #china #imperial #qingdynasty #architecture #emperor #chinesearchitecture #backpacker #tripaholic #coupletrip #instatravel #traveller #takemeback

One of China’s oldest and most influential texts, the I Ching, or Book of Changes, describes the peacock as a cultured bird with nine virtues. It had a dignified appearance and a clear voice, walked with grace, and was punctual. Content and loyal to its fellows, the peacock was also restrained in its appetite, and capable of learning from its mistakes.

Over time, the peacock became synonymous with culture and enlightenment — in the Qing dynasty (1644-1912), imperial fans were made of peacock feathers and only officials of the highest rank were permitted to wear a hat with a peacock feather and coral knob.

In the Ming and Qing dynasties the seniority of officials could be judged by the number of peacock feathers he wore in his hat. So peacocks in decoration can represent the wish to become an official.

The Queen Mother of the West is sometimes depicted riding a peacock. There is a legend of a beautiful daughter who set a challenge to select the man to marry her. She painted a peacock on a screen and the first Tang Emperor Gaozu won her hand by shooting an arrow through both eyes of the peacock in the painting this led to the phrase “choose by hitting the screen of birds” meaning to select a husband.

Walking down the streets of Chinatown in DC, this past weekend and came across this strikingly beautiful archway✨
Obsessed with Chinese architecture and such, this little gem was worth risking my life to take this pic for the gram 😝

晚清-「浙甯玉成窯造」款花鳥圖漢鐸壺
H:8.5 cm

漢鐸壺,平嵌蓋,型如鐘、柱鈕上部置圈線、流直口平、耳把形制特殊,底款「浙甯玉成窯造」,蓋款「心舟」。漢鐸壺形始於清末紫砂名家梅調鼎,他曾製作一把壺,壺身有漢鐸兩大字,並有釋文「以漢之鐸,為今之壺,土既代金,茶當呼荼。」被認為是漢鐸壺之創始。
一面刻文征明《詠玉蘭》:「翠條多力引風長 點破銀花玉雪香」、「辛谷」,另一面則刻畫一雙鳥兒成雙成對,立於玉蘭花枝上,正好巧妙呼應詩境,獨具匠心。
