Mud Man Zhang Painted Sculpture

Last updated by yourguide at 2013-11-1

Mud Man Zhang refers to Zhang Zhiming who was a widely known craftsman in Tianjin. The techniques used in this type of painted sculpture are over five generations old; the original creator was Zhang Mingshan. It is said that when Zhang Mingshan went to watch a play, he would hide a piece of mud in his sleeve. He tweaked the mud while he watched the play. When the play ended, his lively and visually accurate sculptures of all the characters in the play were also finished. The most brilliant work of Mud Man Zhang is from the play Zhongkui ("How to Marry Your Younger Sister"). There are 29 sculptures each with unique expressions and stances; it is a rare and precious work.
