What you'll do
Together, we’ll appreciate several bronzes and porcelains in different ancient china dynasties. And explore the moral of each collection. Different symbols represent different meanings, and the use of them is strictly supervised according to the user’s social status in ancient china society. Besides, there’re some widely-used symbols which represent common good wills among ancient Chinese peasants. For example, the bat on the vases means good luck, so that it is widely printed on the porcelain vessels.
As a local university student, I have been studying Chinese history for more than five years. I know exactly where to find the most fascinating bronzes in Shanghai I'm quite familiar with the hidden meanings of the symbols on the porcelains and bronzes Concentrating all myself on the history really fascinates me. Here I hope to have the opportunity to share my knowledge with you in a story-form.

So that we will be able to compare different vessels to better understand those mysterious symbols. All the collections are maintained well. That really provides us with a splendid, incomparable platform.
