Chinese Sculptures is a neglected area in Chinese Art. Very few Chinese scholars had written on the subject in ancient time. This volume provides an introductory survey over the theory and practice of the Chinese sculptures from the Neolithic period up to the Qing dynasty. 109 objects made of wood, jade, clay, stone, etc. are included in this catalogue, most of them were never published before.
