Description

Vintage Chinese Shiwan Mud Man Monk Figurine from 1940s

This is an original Tai Chi figurines from Shiwan, Foshan China in Guangdong province. It was produced at the Shiwan Artistic Ceramic Factory, about 1940, where ceramic figurines have been hand crafted since early in the Qing Dynasty (1644 to 1912). Originally created as temple decorations, Shiwan figurines became popular in the West in the 18th century and have been export artifacts ever since. The city of Shiwan is famous for artistic hand crafted ceramics including vases, tiles and figurines. Many of the colorful glazes and craft techniques used throughout China today originated in Shiwan during the Tang dynasty (618 to 907AD). As is typical with figurines from the Shiwan Artistic Ceramic Factory, no glaze is applied to the face or hands of the mud man figures.

Shiwan ceramics are highly collectable and capture the culture, history and folklore of China.

It was made sturdy enough for everyday use, but also displays the Harmony and Aesthetic look that is Important to the Chinese Culture.

This Chinese Shiwan monk with a peach figural stands 7" tall and 5" wide. There are no chips, cracks, or repairs.

High quality "Chinese Mud Man" like this one are increasingly hard to find and make good investments as well as stunning decorative item for your home.
