China’s best


Hakgojae gallery in central Seoul presents 131 pieces of old Chinese art in an exhibition titled “Chinese Traditional Arts and Craftworks,” which runs through Dec. 20. Ranging from earthenware made in the Neolithic Period to white jade sculptures by 20th-century carving masters, the exhibits are a history of Chinese crafts. Pieces on exhibit include, from left, a pair of ox-head agate cups decorated with gold from the Liao Dynasty(916~1125); a sancai-glazed dish made in the Song Dynasty(960~1279); and a seal made of tianhuang stone, dubbed “stone more precious than gold,” carved by a 20th-century master craftsman. For details, visit or call (02) 720-1524. [HAKGOJAE]
