What were your ancestors doing in the years 1127 a.d. thru 1279 a.d. (152 years)?
A sunken chinese merchant ship was found in 1987, the first ancient ship found along the Maritime Silk Road. Among the contents were 60,000 to 80,000 precious cargo, especially ceramics (The Guangdong Maritime Silk Road Museum)!
Each piece made by hand.
Marveling at the number of hours invested to create each piece.
Imagining the life of one day of one chinese potter.
