    Have you ever visited the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, which has one of the great Chinese art collections in North America (including a Ming tomb)? I have seen similar pieces there and just love them. They are so beautiful and lively and irresistible that it is hard to grasp that they were crafted nearly 1,300 years ago.
