Teacher's Guide - Ming Dynasty China - Ceramic Pillow Details

This reusable guide covers 1368-1644 and such key people as Ming Hong Wu, Zheng He, Yong Le. It should be used in conjunction with the Ming Dynasty Pillow (EDU 010). The Ming Dynasty was founded in 1368. The word Ming means “brilliant” and their dynasty lived up to its name. Some art collectors consider Ming Dynasty porcelain to be the most beautiful of all Chinese ceramics. Massive forms, intricate designs, and bright colors are typical of Ming ceramics. The most popular decorative motifs were animals, plants, dragons, and human figures in gardens and interior settings. Porcelain pillows were necessities in people’s daily life. The modeling and decorative patterns on the pillows reflect the culture, customs, fashions, and pursuits of the social life at that time. The Ming Dynasty was one of the longest dynasties in Chinese history. It lasted 276 years with 16 emperors occupying the throne. Another accomplishment of the Ming was the building of the Great Wall.
