Raptor on rock, in biscuit
Early 20th century
Inscised mark of “Guangzhou Liao Song zao”
H 29.4 cm
The artist used the “hair carving” method
which is known as the invention of master Huang Bing in late Qing.
Traditionally, birds with graphite glaze application and white glazed dots on
the feathers are named “pearl eagles”. The bird’s eyes are looking for prey, its
left claw steps on the rock and supports the body while balancing with its right
claw. The spread out wings infuse the ceramic with great vivacity.
