About this item

Hsu analyzes ceramic statues representing the 16 luohans, Buddhist "worthy ones" created in Yixian, China and highly glazed in the bright colors of the sancai (tri-color) scheme. Despite their close affinity to several dated Ming (1368-1644) examples in terms of materials, size, and production method, she says the Yixian Luohans have traditionally been ascribed to the Liao dynasty (970-1125), ruled by the Khitan (Chi. Qidan) people, making them almost 500 years older than the Ming works. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
