* Ming Dynasty Green-glazed pottery figure
Ming Dynasty green-glazed pottery figures are renowned for their vibrant green glaze, achieved by adding copper oxide to the clay, which develops its color when fired at high temperatures. These figures, often depicting humans, animals, and mythical beings, were used in tombs as offerings, in temples, or as decorations in affluent homes. Characterized by intricate designs and a glossy finish, they hold significant cultural and religious importance, symbolizing protection and companionship in the afterlife. These pieces are highly valued for their artistic merit and historical significance in the realm of Chinese ceramics.
