Antique Chinese Porcelain Trigram Dish Late Ming Tianqi or Chongzhen Plate

About

A very nicely decorated plate from the 17th century with a scene of the Eight trigram, The Eight Trigrams (Pa Kua) The eight diagrams symbolize the eight natural phenomena: sky, earth, thunder, wind, water, fire, mountain and lake. Through combinations of three broken or unbroken horizontal lines they could be made to symbolize aspects of the universe. Their earliest use as decoration on ceramics dates from the late Song period. These eight sets of three straight lines are often arranged in a circle. They are said to have been evolved from the markings on the shell of a tortoise by the legendary sage Emperor Fuxi. The unbroken lines represent the male principle Yang and the broken lines represent the Female principle Ying. The arrangement in a circle is important as this is referring to the cyclic changes of the nature and is fundamental for the understanding of Chinese philosphy from its earliest beginning. 7-5-19-1-10 Condition Overall condition. Rimfritting, filled chip and hairline & Baseline. 169mm Period 17th century Ming (1368-1620).
