A small pottery figurine of a resting dancer is among the treasures of the Tang dynasty (618-907) in the Museum's collection of Asian art, and inspired the reproduction for this sculpture. Her close-fitting, short jacket and full skirt derive from Central Asian clothing styles. The Tang dynasty (618-907) is regarded as the golden age of China. During this period, China was the cultural center of a vast network extending from the Byzantine world to Japan. The arts of the Tang period reflect the cosmopolitan nature of Tang culture. Under imperial patronage, literature, fine arts and learning were nourished and flourished. It was a time of patricians and intellectuals; and poetry, music, song and dance.
