Why this is a
Masterpiece

The vase takes the shape of a double-fish which was widely regarded as an auspicious symbol in traditional China. Tri-color pottery was very common in the Tang Dynasty, but the double-fish shape was rare.

History of the Object
The Tang Dynasty, with its capital at Chang'an (present-day Xi'an) is generally regarded as a high point in Chinese civilization; it was largely a period of progress and stability. Tang San Cai or tri-color Tang pottery is the generic name for color-glazed pottery of the Tang Dynasty and functioned specifically as a burial object. Although neither the whereabouts of Tang tri-color kilns, nor their makers are known, Tang San Cai represents a great historical period and a unique ancient art form.
