Wadang in Qin and Han Dynasties

洪福遠 , 1988-1998

The Wadang is the hanging part at the top of the tube tile in ancient Chinese architecture. These patterns have the styles of Qin Dynasty (221-207 BC) and Han Dynasty (202BC-220 ). There are four God patterns, galloping deer, three cranes, dragon, Phoenix, etc. in the lower Wadang, the word “Yannian” is written, implying longevity, which is a blessing and auspicious language often used in Qin and Han Wadangs. The natural mottled and cracks of batik works complement each other with the ancient and simple patterns of these Wadangs.
