Has high collection value. Three colors of Tang Dynasty, a general term for pottery excavated from Tang tombs,
was later regarded as a term in ceramic classification by scholars. Three colors in Tang Dynasty
do not refer specifically to those three colors. Among the pottery figurines, statues and other pottery excavated from Tang tombs, t
here are only single colors or two colors, and there are many artifacts, but they have complex colorful colors. Generally speaking,
in addition to the white ground of the carcass, lead, yellow, green and blue are the most common colors, and the blending
techniques of the three colors are also the most artistic charm. There are few utensils in Tang Sancai, but there are many ponies,
small livestock and small poultry, all of which have rich artistic artistry, especially pottery figurines of various characters and
bearded heads with supernatural images, which have the most artistic value. Tri-colored wares show all kinds of implements
used in real life in Tang Dynasty, but among these implements, the forms of social life at that time are completely presented,
thus it is known that the shapes and quantities of funerary wares and other implements are determined according to the rank
of the tombs and the size of their families. For example, there are 90 things above three items, 60 things above five items,
and 40 things above nine items. Quite a horse. I'm one foot tall. Other music teams, children's servants, and ceremonies also
depend on the rank of their products during their lifetime. At the end of the early Tang Dynasty, the wind of thick burial began
to flourish, and then from the prosperous Tang Dynasty to the middle and late Tang Dynasty, the wind of thick burial became
more and more popular, and it was almost like sacrifice to make flowers, human figures and food for passers-by. Since the
Tang Dynasty paid attention to the use of tri-colored funerary wares, since the construction of Henan Bianluo Railway in the
late Qing Dynasty, a large number of tri-colored wares and figurines have been excavated in Tang tombs in Mangshan and
other places in the northern suburb of Luoyang. Regardless of its shape and color, Tang Sancai is highly artistic, which has
attracted the attention of people from Japan, Europe and the United States, and it was purchased at a high price. Since then,
Tang Sancai has been listed as a part of world art. The above is quoted from the art document "Three Colors of Tang
Dynasty" by Wang Aijun of Junyouhui. The most prosperous time of Tang Sancai production was from Kaiyuan to
Tianbao to Dali (AD 713-766). His artistic achievements are the ancient times and the present, and he is famous both
at home and abroad. The Three Colors of Tang Dynasty originated from a dynasty that perfected Qiang Ming.
At the same time, it also concretely and actively reflected the spirit of the times that perfected Qiang Ming.
The production of Tang Sancai has a history of more than 1300 years. It absorbs the characteristics of Chinese traditional painting,
sculpture and other arts and crafts. The production process of Tang Sancai is complicated, with finely processed kaolin as the green body,
minerals containing copper, iron, cobalt, manganese and gold as the colorant of glaze, and a proper amount of lead smelting
slag and lead ash as additives. Firstly, the biscuit is baked in a kiln; after the pottery is fired, it is glazed and fired to about 800℃.
Because of the fluidity of lead glaze, the glaze spreads and flows around in the firing process, and various glazes infiltrate and
blend with each other to form natural and mottled colors. It is a traditional handicraft with unique Chinese style. The shapes of Tang
Sancai are rich and colorful, which can be generally divided into four categories: living utensils, models, figures and animals,
especially animals, which may be related to the background of the times at that time. In ancient China, horses were one of the
important means of transportation for people. Horses were needed on the battlefield, farmers needed horses for farming,
and transportation, so there were many horses unearthed in Tang Sancai. Secondly, there were more camels,
which may be related to the trade between China and foreign countries at that time.
Camels were one of the means of transportation for long journeys, and camels were needed as a means
of transportation along the Silk Road. Therefore, craftsmen reflect it on handicrafts.
The characters generally have more court maids, which reflects the court life at that time.
