Eastern art

 

Chinese culture is one of the oldest and most complex in civilization. Its artisanal and artistic legacy left to the world can be so broad that the correct identification, certification, and appraisal of a piece arising from its cultural production is in itself one of the most specialized areas of study in the world of art and antiques.

For example, in the case of jade, which for more than 5,000 years has been used as a material to make utensils or ornaments that had (and have) a reputation as amulets that attract luck. In its origins, jade was as hard and resistant as any other material, which is why it was also used to make weapons and tools.
In the same way, the Chinese combined texture, color, and sculpture to produce the first form of porcelain with their designs adorned plates, bowls, teapots, statues, and vases. The latter continues to intrigue collectors nowadays.
