「History」 The Tang Dynasty was one of the most brilliant periods in China's long history - was characterized by a golden age in arts, literature, design and culture. Tang artisans favored the horse because of its remarkable value and skills in both farming and battle. The famous drip glaze technique was perfected during this era. The art of ceramics flourished during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). One of the major developments of this Dynasty came with the introduction of varicolored, soft glazes for use on ceramics. The most famous Tang Dynasty ceramic pieces include earthenware objects with tricolor glazes. Sancai sculptures remain one of the most admired and treasured art forms till this day.
