A small boy, painted on a Kangxi blue and white vase, has a frown ...the painter gave him a sad face.
The boy goes on a quest in search of his smile, throughout the Chinese art of the 17th and 18th century. A wonderful, adventurous story that inspires to take a very close and new approach to looking at this art form with your (grand)child.
A very different and great present for your child or grandchild.
