Ming Ceramics Edt. II: Lotus Moonflask

by Studio Metta Setiandi

IDR 200.000,00

A Risograph reproduction of a Ming dynasty moonflask by Studio Metta Setiandi, as part of her Heritage series. The shape of the moonflask is inspired by Persian and Central Asian metalwork, in reference to the Silk Road trading history during the Ming dynasty. Whilst the lotus painting symbolises quality, it is often associated with purity and harmony.

Metta Setiandi’s work is distinctly influenced by social anthropology, humanities, culture, and especially her upbringing in Glodok, the so-called Chinatown of Jakarta. She created the Heritage series as a means to encourage people to preserve their ancestors' legacy; by inviting its essence into their everyday lives and collecting items that evoke stores and meaning to surround us with its beauty and traditional values.
