Historical Context of China

China has always been a rather enigmatic figure in the eyes of the West, distinctive in its cultural and political institutions and quite restricted in essence, but nonetheless representative of an incredibly sophisticated and artistically lush culture. China remains a pioneer in technology and technical innovation, in the respective domains of the arts and sciences, and an astonishing number of innovations have been established by Chinese artisans. This includes true porcelain, with kaolin as the main ingredient, which appeared in the early 1300s. It is not until 1722 that the Meissen factory in Germany discovered the fundamental elements of the recipe, thus enabling Europe to produce porcelain of the same technical qualities. The art and culture of the Maoist era, which would live on for decades from the mid-century period, were used as a mean for a number of propagandist ideals, serving the revolutionary communism of Mao Zedong.
