Description:
"Gold Leaf Painted ~ 12 Inch Vase with Sunset Cranes. Gold Leaf Lacquerware is one of the finest crafts produced in China. It involves a 20 step process that converts normal ojects of porcelain or wood into beautiful masterpieces. Each piece is hand painted and guilded with gold leaf, then finished with over 10 coats of lacquer, a process that can take up to a month to complete. For decorative purposes, we do not recommend using water in the vase. Handcrafted in China."





China Trivia

In 1974, workers in China were busy digging a new well when they made the most amazing discovery. They came upon a pit where initially, they unearthed 1,000 pieces of pottery figurines, a few bronze chariots, horses, and weapons that would have been used during that era. However, they soon discovered this pit was massive and the resting place of more than 6,000 full-size soldiers made from terra cotta, all standing in formation, many with their horses ready for battle. Archaeologists were ecstatic about this find and intrigued that the horses all faced east and the soldiers each had unique facial expressions, making them appear uncanny but realistic. To date, 96 horses and 11 chariots have been uncovered but archeologists believe this is just the beginning. The Army of Terra Cotta Warriors depicts a very clear picture. In 221 BC during the Qing Dynasty, Qin Shi Huang was the Emperor in reign. The Terra Cotta Army was built as a way of creating an illusion of strength and manpower. It was believed that as enemies approached, they would be overwhelmed with the powerful army supporting Emperor Qin and turn away. It took more than one million workers to create the army and to lay your eyes on the masterpiece is indescribable.
