Ceramics have been hailed as China’s fifth largest invention, and have had an important and far-reaching impact on the world’s ceramic technology and the exchange of Chinese and Western culture. The tangible ceramic objects and the intangible philosophical spirit of Taoism also have different mutual relationship, which embodies the concept of “I Ching”, “the metaphysical is the way, the metaphysical is the device”. The Han Culture Association had the honor to invite Jiang, Zhiping, an oil painter and a ceramic artist to give a lecture on Chinese ceramics in the Han Culture Villa in July and to showcase the ceramics for the guests.

Guqin, formerly known as Qin, was renamed Guqin in order to distinguish it from the piano in the 1920s. It is a Chinese stringed instrument with a history of more than 3,000 years. The guqin has a wide range of timbre, deep timbre, and long reverberation. Since ancient times, “qin” is its specific reference. At the beginning, it was made up of five strings, and the seven emblems of the Han dynasty were custom-made, and there were 13 emblems that marked the melody. They were also ritual instruments and musical instruments. Qin is the most lofty musical instrument in the status of traditional Chinese culture, with the view that “there is no reason not to withdraw the instrument” and “Zuoqin Youshu”.

Since ancient times, it has been a must-have for many literati and a compulsory subject.
