Turtle Sculpture / Vessel
#Turtle #chinese ceramics #chinesesculpture
The site I found this on did not give an exact date though the use of what could be porcelain or a white stoneware clay and a clear or very light celadon glaze suggest TANG at the earliest to me ?
The combination of carved slabs and possibly two thrown bowls joined lead to an overall effect as much sculptural as ceramic and the simple clear lines remind me a lot of larger WEI dynasty sculptures.
I did state in an earlier post I'ld try to find images of unusual images that are not text book examples. Enjoy
