Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is a rare object by virtue of its decoration. It consists of Islamic plant ornamentation and quotations from the Koran, painted in Arabic in underglaze-blue. The brush stand is shaped like a garden rock. It is one of rather few objects testifying to the influence of Islam.

History of the Object
The stand was probably made for a high official or court functionary of Muslim faith. Islam was spread to China during the Tang Dynasty, which was open to many different cultures. Under Emperor Zhengde, Islam existed as an unofficial religion even at the Imperial court It is now shown in the exhibition China – in the middle of the World at Kulturen in Lund.
