Oriental Jar II tapestry shows an ancient urn on display. Like its companion piece "Oriental Jar I", this tapestry shows the piece of Asian art culture which became an epitome of art in China which is the art of urn or vase making. In this tapestry, the branches of abundant blue white flowers as well as tree branches decorate the entire urn itself. Since the dynasties from 210 AD to the modern day, the artists of the ruling emperors produced works which showed the artistic and cultural interests of the emperors and culture itself. When the interests of the Chinese culture changed, so did the designs which appeared on their urns. When the ruling emperors were interested in other cultures the forms and decorations on the urns changed and reflected this influence. In return, European spies studied the techniques used by Chinese ceramic artists with regards to how ceramics we made, glazed and painted or colored. This Oriental 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.
