Chirping Birds and Fragrant Flowers

Nature is perhaps the single most important source of creative inspiration for artists, particularly birds and flowers which have been used as motifs by local and foreign artists since ancient times. Being imbued with the warmth and beauty of the earth, the use of birds and flowers reveals our deep-seated yearning for the beauty of nature. The “Chirping Birds and Fragrant Flowers: Ceramic Art Collection Exhibition” is filled with ceramic works from the museum’s collection that showcase the theme of birds and flowers. Whether household ceramics, decorative ceramics, or modern works, the combination of bird and flower patterns and distinctive shapes presents visitors with a wide range of intriguing stories. At the same time, these works also demonstrate the way in which interpretations of the bird and flower motif have evolved over time.
