“Ceramics and Porter” unveiled at Chongqing Memory Museum
Being shirtless, the man shoulders two large baskets of ceramics. It’s so heavy that the carrying pole is bent and he knits his brows and bends knees to strive.
It takes He Yue, a famous contemporary ceramic sculptor, four years to complete this, which vividly shows a moment of porter and displays the diligence and arduousness of Chongqing people.
He Yue said that this is his third work completed at Ciqikou Ancient Town. “Ceramics and Porter”, “Night Watchman” and “Ciqikou Stories” reflect Bayu culture and the regional culture. From them, visitors can get a real sense of the culture. (Translated by Li Li, Fathom Language Limited)
