, Europe and Asia. Qiu Ying's courtesy name (Chinese style name#Zì_(adult name)) was Shifu (实父), and his pseudonym (Chinese style name#Hào_(pseudonym)) was Shizhou (十洲). He was born to a peasant family in Taicang (太仓 - now Jiangsu Province) and studied painting under Zhou Chen in Suzhou. Though Suzhou's Wu School encouraged painting in ink washes, Qiu Ying also painted in the green-and-blue style. He painted with the support of wealthy
is almost all painted in the underglazed cobalt blue style that was perfected under the Ming dynasty, although a few examples of dishes over-painted with vitreous enamel glaze have survived (''see for example this dish in the Princessehof Museum, Leeuwarden'' It is often decorated with variations on the more traditional motifs found on Chinese porcelain, such as stylized flowers ( Peony peonies and chrysanthemums) and Buddhist auspicious emblems (Ashtamangala). However, most characteristic of Kraak decoration is the use of foliated radial panels. In other words, the surface of the porcelain is divided into segments, each containing its own discrete image (''see example in the Met'' Image:Palace kitchens Topkapi 2007 012.jpg thumb left Ming dynasty blue-and-white plate, 16th century (Topkapı Museum (Topkapı Palace), Istanbul) From the 13th century, Chinese pictorial designs, such as flying cranes (Crane (bird)), dragons and lotus flowers also started to appear in the ceramic productions of the Near-East, especially in Syria and Egypt. The influence of Blue and white porcelain of the Yuan (Yuan dynasty) and Ming dynasties (Ming dynasty) is evident in many ceramics made by Muslim potters. Iznik pottery from around Iznik in Anatolia was supported by the Ottoman court and produced the finest Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) work in pottery and panels of tiles, using the same vocabulary of bold and elegant floral designs derived from Chinese decoration. A characteristic bold red was developed. Iznik ware had a major influence on European decorative arts: for example, on Italian Maiolica. The pottery was produced in as early as the 15th century AD, and was preceded by Miletus ware from the same region. M.S. Tite 1989, Iznik Pottery: An Investigation of the Methods of Production, ''Archaeometry'' 31.2: 115. Its best period lasted until the late 16th century. It consists of a body, slip (slip (ceramics)), and glaze, where the body and glaze are “quartz-frit.” Tite 1989, 120. The “frits” in both cases “are unusual in that they contain lead oxide as well as soda (sodium oxide)”; the lead oxide would help reduce the thermal expansion coefficient (coefficient of thermal expansion) of the ceramic. Tite 1989, 129. Microscopic analysis reveals that the material that has been labeled “frit” is “interstitial glass” which serves to connect the quartz particles. Tite 1989, 120, 123. Michael S. Tite argues that this glass was added as frit and that the interstitial glass formed on firing. Tite 1989, 121. The technique was used in the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), and later, particularly during the reign of the Yongzheng emperor (1723-1735). Some '''An hua''' dishes were found inside a storage jar in the mid-15th Century (1450-1487?) ''Belankan'' shipwreck off the coast of Indonesia, found circa 1999. According to the ''Army Account of Military Arts and Science'' (Hanzi: 武備志; Pinyin: ''Wǔ Bèi Zhì''), a Ming dynasty strategy book written in 1629 by Mao Yuanyi, Korean fencing (朝鮮勢法; Cháoxiǎn shìfǎ) was a martial art that had reached Korea through Chinese martial artists , 1521–1556) was a Ming dynasty scholar. A native of Shunde (顺德) in Guangdong province, he completed the Jinshi (进士) level of the Imperial Examination in 1550. He was involved in two well known poetry circles "The Latter Five Poets of the Southern Garden" (南园后五子), and "The Seven Masters" (后七子). His most famous work is Lántīng Cúngǎo (兰汀存稿) (also known as Bǐbùjí 比部集). The short section is featured with historical Tung Chung Battery, a military coastal defence in Ming dynasty. It runs along the a river Ma Wan Chung and ends in Chung Yan Road. thumb Once you have acquired the skills (File:Qi jiguang.JPG), you must test them on an opponent, but in no way should you consider victory or submission to be a cause for shame or pride. '''Qi Jiguang (w:Qi Jiguang)''' (simplified Chinese (w:Simplified Chinese): 戚继光; traditional Chinese (w:Traditional Chinese) 戚繼光; 12 November 1528 – 5 January 1588) was a Ming dynasty (w:Ming dynasty) Chinese military general who defended China against wokou (w:wokou) pirates and reinforced the Great Wall (w:Great Wall of China) against Mongol (w:Mongols) incursions. He authored several military manuals which have been widely read in China, Korea, and Japan.
