History of Asian art
The Lunar New Year. For Chinese, in China and in ethnic communities around the world, the lunar new year is the most important and most festive holiday of the year. Family members from near and far would travel to be with loved ones in time to usher out the old year and welcome in the new, with great celebratory flourish. With a calendar dating from the third millennium BCE, the Chinese people have for thousands of years been building on ancient customs of New Year celebrations. Although they may vary from region to region, village to village, and even family to family according to social position, many of these customs are still observed. Today, all over China, during what is now commonly referred to as the Spring Festival, passenger trains, buses, and river boats are packed with holiday travelers; shops do a flurry of business selling gifts, new clothes, and festive foods; kitchens are bustling with preparations for elaborate feasts; and streets are filled with the sounds of firecrackers and seasonal greetings.

A masterpiece of Asian art. Cut off by mountains, deserts and oceans from other centres of human evolution, China developed its own self-contained but highly advanced civilization , which featured an astonishing combination of progressive technology, ancient art , and cultural awareness. Strangely however, little evidence has so far emerged of any significant tradition of cave art on the Chinese mainland. The original centre of Chinese culture was along the great Yellow River which crosses the North China Plain, where stable settlements have dated back to at least BCE. Archeological discoveries - notably from the burial mounds of prosperous individuals - indicate that from about BCE the Chinese cultivated silk worms, had beautifully finished tools and produced a wide range of cultural artifacts. Thereafter, during the period BCE, Chinese artists mastered numerous forms of visual art , including: Chinese Pottery which began in China around 10, BCE, and includes Chinese porcelain ; jade carving and other types of metalworking and jewellery art ; bronzes mainly ceremonial vessels ; Buddhist sculpture and secular terracotta sculpture exemplified by the Chinese Terracotta Army ; Chinese painting and calligraphy ; as well as crafts such as lacquerware.
