Teacher's Guide - Tang Dynasty China - Rooster Sculpture Details

This reusable guide covers 618-907 and such key people as Li Yuan and Empress Wu. It should be used in conjunction with Tang Dynasty Rooster Sculpture (EDU 016). The Tang Dynasty is an important era in Chinese history that lasted from 618–906. During this time China became the greatest power in Asia. Its capital was the center of trade and culture and had the largest population in the world. As Chinese armies re-opened the old Silk Roads, trade brought visitors with new arts and customs. Tang potters were very skilled and imaginative. Their pottery and sculpture is known for its elegant shape and beautiful colors. They usually sculpted plants, birds, and animals, including camels, horses, dogs, roosters, ducks, and human figures. Tang potters decorated their pieces with a ‘three-color’ glazing technique. Such pieces were made for funerals and burials, rather than for daily use. Tang potters were masters in the production of ‘three-color’ glaze. Sometimes the colors trickled irregularly down the body of the object.
