Catalogue Entry

Holding a fine needle between his left thumb and forefinger, A Tailor of Qing Dynasty pulls a thread with his right hand, carefully threading a needle. This delicate item reflects the tailor works meticulously. Each part of A Tailor of Qing Dynasty, including the tailor's glasses, his pigtail, as well as the scissors and the needle holder on the table, are a striking reflection of what is true to real life.


Shiwan figurines have the capacity to emulate Chinese folklore, mythology, sociology, philosophy and fine art. The Cultural Centre museum's contemporary replica embodies the unique qualities of Shiwan figurines. Facial expressions, garments, and composition are illusrated expressively by the artist. Exaggerations support the Shiwan figurine style that is both odd and tangible.


《清代裁縫》左手拇指和食指夾著一根細針,右手拉線,小心翼翼地穿針。這件精緻的單品體現了裁縫的一絲不苟。《清代裁縫》的每一個部分,包括裁縫的眼鏡、辮子,以及桌上的剪刀和針架,都是對現實生活的真實反映。


石灣俑具有模仿中國民間傳說、神話、社會學、哲學和美術的能力。文化中心博物館的當代複製品則體現了石灣俑的獨特品質,其面部表情、服裝和構圖由藝術家富有表現力地描繪出來。誇張性亦是既奇特又有形的石灣雕像風格之一。
