"boy-shaped ceramic pillow"- Song Dynasty (960-1279) when i saw this, i thought it was a mere decorative piece but from the article i learned that porcelain & jade pillows were very popular in ancient china! thought to comfort body, soothe spirit & even clear eyesight "so that one could read small characters when one is old"! very interesting...     i'm not sure why this caught my eye, but i'm now quite enthralled with it...    *currently in collection of beijing palace museum
