Overview

Classic forms of Chinese jade, and other sculpted works, have a message. A song the piece sings.

Knowing the prayer, legend, or lesson the piece sings enhances the experience a step beyond seeing the artwork, the value, or its function. Each figure represented can speak to you.

Learn how the Chinese see their dragon as benevolent, rather than a menace. Read the story of the goddess, Quan yin.

(a cindarella story).

Illustrated, and explained, using the authors collection, are the songs of a different culture, and traditions thousands of years old.
