The most famous collection in Taipei Palace Museum is the The Green Jade Cabbage. The artisan carve the jade with white and green two colors to make this opus, very lively. The two insect on the cabbage represent having many offsprings. Beside the Green Jade Cabbage, there's a stone called Meat-shaped Stone. It looks like a tasty piece of meat, looks very cute.
Then we went to the carving craft venue. The opuses in this venue are so great. The artisans in Qing Dynasty had super good craft, the micro-carving opuses is wonderful. The Nut Boat and the Ivory Hamper are the best two opuses. Even the details are clear and lively.
A very characteristic venue is the Snuff Bottle Venue. The Kings and the Noblemen of Qing Dynasty love using snuff bottles very much. So the artisans tried hard to make the Snuff Bottle beautiful in order to please their lords. There're so many different kinds of Snuff Bottle in the Venue. Some are made of Jade, some have pretty decoration, some are Western Style.
Another Venue that gave my strong impression is the Play-thing Venue. In this venue, the play-things that used to be own by the King are showed. These little things are delicate and creative. Some of them even still keep giving modern designers inspiration.
