Sparking Joy: When Chinese Neolithic Pottery Meets the Modern Designer
Portraiture of the Primitive Society原始面貌

Humanoid bottles and vessels decorated with human heads are rare but important pottery from the Neolithic period. The human form is the most primitive representation of civilisation, as these could be seen as portraiture of contemporary society. Various depictions of either the female figure, or a more masculine attempt of the human face which could distantly link with warfare or religious faces of shamen all belong to a piece of life in the Neolithic society.

Art of Abstraction抽象之藝

Engraved triangles, swirling spirals, ropetwists and chevrons – The Neolithic pottery presented in this sale brings you to a world of optical illusion and embryonic geometry of the earliest human civilisation.
