Last updated by yourguide at 2014/5/4

Tri-Colored Glazed Pottery of the Tang Dynasty or Tangsancai was the essence of Tang dynasty art. In the ancient Tang Dynasty over 1,000 years ago, people glazed tomb figures, pottery with three main colors, red, green and yellow. So later, people called these multi-color glazed items Tang San Cai.

The yellow, green and red glazed ceramics are fired at high temperatures to give the finished porcelain an amazing colourful pattern. Products slimmer in shape were fired during the Jin Dynasty, and a fuller ones were popular during the Tang Dynasty.

The most popular subjects are the horse, camel and human figures.
