Since the Ming dynasty, Chinese literati had developed a taste for a more sophisticated lifestyle. They became interested in collecting and appreciating the tools and objects used in their scholarly life. In this exhibition, ancient Chinese stationery items, accessories and tea ware made of bamboo, jade, inkstone, as well as zisha (purple clay) will be shown, including selected collections from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Visitors will be able to take a glimpse into the everyday life of traditional Chinese literati. In addition, the exhibition will also introduce the utensils and setup of a Chinese tea ceremony in an interactive manner, based on the theme of tea-tasting activities that were often seen in ancient literati gatherings. We hope to explore the close relationship between the utensils used by literati and their lives through the exhibition, as well as the traditional Chinese cultural heritage reflected.
