Topic:My Encounter with Ancient Chinese Women

Art is a gateway for us to travel through time and gain insight to the past. By appreciating ancient art pieces, we can have a glimpse of people’s lives during that particular era. As a world renowned sculptor and art lover, Professor Norman W.M. Ko had visited countless museums over the world, and took many photographs of art pieces such as sculptures, statues, and potteries, with a particular interest in female representation in Chinese art. He will share his encounters with these ancient Chinese women, from the Neolithic age to the Sui and Tang dynasties, and highlight how these women are represented in different periods.
