In this tapestry, we see an ancient Oriental jar on display. Among the many examples of Asian culture, the Chinese urn is one rich in history and stories, and are often seen in Oriental wall hangings. Ancient pottery in the form of urns and vases have been found from thousands of years ago, but the more modern, elaborate and highly collectible examples such as the one we see in this tapestry have been known to be found from the Han dynasty in about 210 AD. Then later in the Tan dynasty and subsequently the Song and Ming dynasties, these evolved into fine works of art. The art of ceramic making with clay and porcelain, with the use of pigments and painting, the urns themselves became a form of art creation. In this piece we see an elaborate design of flowers growing from an urn all throughout the urn itself. The interests of the ruling emperors were reflected in the design of the urns themselves and can be traced through history. Oriental Jar I tapestry is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rods and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
