Cultural Sphere of China
This text will be replaced with a player.
Intro :
The “cultural sphere of China,” due to its distinctive cultural climate, was formed long ago. This region was heavily influenced by Chinese philosophy and writing, and produced a tradition shared in common with many East and Southeast Asian societies. The commonly shared cultural elements include tea, sacred art, ceramics, etc. It is noteworthy that these art forms have developed separately over time in different regions. Specifically, the arts of calligraphy, painting, lacquer ware, ceramics, silks and textiles, and tea culture from different regions were all once interconnected in the cultural sphere.
