Catalogue Entry

The Tang Dynasty (618-906) is referred to as the "Golden Age". This period signifyied a distinct cultural shift and re-birth of the arts in China. Building and improving from Han Dynasty, the Tang Dynasty developed distinct ceramic styles, including tri-coloured pottery.


As reflected in Tri-Colour Figurines of Musicians, the musician's bodies are depicted as curvy in order to reflect the "ideal" body type for women of this time period. Many tri-coloured figureines were painted in a lively fashion, depicting the colourful costumes wore by performers. Each figurine was made by a skilled artisan, relfecting the best design accomplishments within China's history.


唐代(618-906)被稱為中國歷史上的“黃金時代”,皆因這朝代標誌著中國文化的主要轉變和中國傳統藝術的重生。經過從漢代起的建造和改進,唐代的陶瓷發展出其獨特的風格,包括三彩陶器。


正如三彩坐坡音樂俑所反映的那樣,音樂俑的身體被塑造成彎曲的,以反映這個時期的女性“理想”體型。許多三彩陶俑都被畫得栩栩如生,描繪了表演者五顏六色的服裝。每個陶俑均出自技藝精湛的工匠之手,體現了中國歷史上輝煌的設計成就。
