Catalogue Entry

Cooking rice balls over a small stove on the street, the Hawker cries out "rice balls, rice balls" to attract customers.


Shiwan ceramic sculptures encapsulate a spectrum of emotions that remain unmatched by other kiln. Immortals look stern, soldiers appear courageous, poets are deep in thought and heroines radiate with charm. Some sculpters balance exaggerated facial expressions with simplified forms. Facial features and limbs come alive through the eyes of Shiwan figurine artists.


小販在街上的小爐子上一邊煮著湯丸,一邊喊著「湯丸,湯丸」來吸引顧客。


石灣陶瓷雕塑包含了其他窯址無法比擬的一系列情感。神仙被描繪得表情凝重,兵士勇猛,詩人沉思,而女主角則表現得神采奕奕。一些雕塑家更能在誇張的面部表情和簡化的形式之間取得平衡。石灣的雕塑藝術家使人偶的五官和四肢都表現得栩栩如生。
