Tang Dynasty Arts … angler’s imagination.

I was looking through a book that showed beautiful ceramics from the Tang Dynasty and imagined for a moment that the inspirations for these came from fish/ trout colors. Tang era is considered by many as the golden age of cosmopolitan culture and Chinese culture flourished during this time. Tang is also considered the greatest age for Chinese poetry. These are beautiful. I'd love to go back to Xi'an someday.
