What are some differences between Egyptian art and ancient Chinese Art? Also, what are some differences between Egyptian religion and ancient Chinese religion. I need at least 3-5 differences. Not similarities, differences. :) Thanks!

Differences in Egyptian Art and Ancient Chinese Art are

1. Types of material used eg papyrus or animal skins etc

2. Languages written eg Hiroglyphics or Chinese Characters

3. Types of paint used or material for decoration eg animal pigments or earth colours

Differences between Egyptian Religion and ancient Chinese religion are

1. Egyptians worshipped animals and nature plus their pharoahs
Chinese people worshipped Buddha

2. Buddha was and still being worshipped in temples whilst Egyptians now worship as a majority Islam or even in some areas Christianity

3. Pyramids were built for Egyptian pharoahs for burial and the after life and Buddhists believe in reincarnation….

Hope that helps but please look up Google for more information. Good luck!

 

How can I prop up my Jade branches?

On October 21, 2012, in Jade Store, by admin

I do know the usual method is with a specific strength copper wire, like people who do bonsais use. The problem is getting the wire. I don’t feel like buying a whole box of co-ax wire for two feet of wire and I doubt I could afford the price, even if I could find the electrical outlet store to buy it. So, apart from the traditional way, how do I get my jade plant to branch up, instead of bow down?

I’ve done many crafts in my life, so let’s assume I have all sorts of oddball things lying around my house.

I have pipe cleaners, yarn, fabric, skewers for shish-ka-bobs, the green insulated wire used for wreath-making, those little toothpicky things with very thin wire used for wreath-making, chopsticks, string, etc. I know. I have all sorts of things, except the thing I actually need. Don’t laugh so hard that you forget to answer my question. lol

Some people are practical, some are crafty, and then others are like me – scattered, but well-meaning. I love my plants. They don’t expect much from me and live when I give them enough to survive. Now I’m trying to grow a jade that doesn’t look like a weeping willow. lol
Holy cow! How big was your jade when you first bought it? Mine is about the same age, but it’s trunk is only about 4-7 inches tall. It’s mother is about 10 years old and not much taller. (Brancher, but not taller. lol)

It’s not lack of light. I just brought it in from my summer garden. My garden has no shade, so it can’t be a light problem. In the winter, they (it has baby brothers and sisters, too lol) get a second-story, west-facing windowsill. The trunk is about as thick as my finger. And the droopy is simply because the weight of the leaves is heavier than the branches. I even pull off some of the leaves along the branches and pinch back the ends to take some of the heaviness away. What did you buy – a century old jade? lol
I couldn’t find a picture of just it, but this picture shows my new succulents the same year I got them all. The one you can only see half of on the right is the mother of the plant I’m trying to stop from drooping now. It’s a little smaller (that’s about the height then) and a lot more leaves then the one I have now, but hopefully, you (half) see what I started with a decade ago. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v117/AtWhatCost/succulents.jpg
Thanks CG and Shade. I didn’t know it needed fertilizer. My other succulents don’t do well with fertilizer, so I assumed. lol And prop it up sounds brilliant! (Duh, now!) Thanks. Now my only problem is to figure out who to give Best Answer too. Do know the help is appreciated, and I’ll let others pick who is the best answer.

How big is your Jade? Are the branches growing downward or are the branches too weak to support the weight? If they are too weak to support the weight then your Jade needs more light. If you give it more light the branches will get thicker and stronger and will grow more tree-like. I sit my jade outside in the summer until the first frost. Then I bring it inside for the winter. This really promotes vigorous strong growth. It also stimulates it to bloom from the cool nights in the fall. It has bloomed every year for the last 3 or 4 years. I really wouldn’t suggest using wire to wrap branches for support as the wire will eventually cut into the trunk and branches and damage it. I would suggest driving a stake into the soil and then tie a piece of yarn around the stake until it is capable of supporting itself. I have attached a picture of my Jade. It is 6 1/2 years old, 3 feet tall and almost 4 feet wide. It’s trunk is 5 inches in diameter. Good luck with your jade. If you have any additional details about your jade or any other questions I would be glad to help.

Had to comment on Ronnie…His post is about Jade the ornamental stone…not jade the plant lol.
Also if you are asking about creating bonsai I cannot help you much other than to be careful using wires when directing the branches for growing…they can damage the plant if the plant grows too rapidly.

I actually pulled a 1 inch plant growing out of the soil of my moms jade 6 1/2 years ago. It had 2 leaves and I could barely see it over the edge of the pot I planted it in. The only reason I know exactly how old it is is because I got it from my moms when my youngest daughter was born.
I did have to stake mine as it grew. If it is getting plenty of light (sitting it outside in the summer or in a very bright window etc) then I would stake it and give it fertilizer once a month. Does it need to be transplanted? Jades also get kind of woody as they age. It’s not really wood but the trunk and branches turn grayish brown and become firmer. The branches of mine are only green on the ends (new growth) and the green branches are weaker until they age a bit. I will see if I can post a pic of the differences. The second picture shows the differences in the older and newer branches. The First picture is the trunk of my Jade. Its about 5 inches in diameter at its thickest.

Just a bit of a notation…don’t fertilize during the dormant period of November-February.

The Art of Chinese Face Mask Changing

On October 18, 2012, in Chinese Art, by admin

变脸, 變臉, Biàn Liǎn more commonly known as face changing is a 300 year old tradition set within Chinese Sichuan opera that began during the reign of the Qing Dynasty Emperor Qianlong (1736-1795).

Originally performers would blow into a bowl of coloured powder which would stick to their well oiled skin to actors smearing themselves with paint that would be hidden within the palms of their hands.

The focus of the art is to represent mood and emotion as an actor performs their piece with blacks and reds representing anger and fury while blues would represent calmness.

Biàn Liǎn is a hugely popular art-form with the Chinese being very proud of its history and skill and it shows as crowds still flock today to see the best performers. It has even the source for a 1996 film The King of Masks.

Very few people have been taught Biàn Liǎn and has mainly continued via lineage, although it is noted there are a few people outside of China who can perform this and one Hong Kong pop star Andy Lau had allegedly paid a substantial sum to learn the art but he is yet to master it.

One modern day performer of face changing is He Hongqing who is a master of the art and has practised for many years, he also makes all of his own masks!

The 45-year-old He makes all the brightly coloured masks, which he switches at mind-boggling speed at popular performances, himself and usually wears 10 layers at one show.

The beauty of his art, He says, lies in its secrecy.

“What is amazing about face changing is its mystery. Through performance and movements, performers are in effect playing with magic. In fact, face changing is a kind of magic,” said He.

He can slip off his masks within a fraction of a second, and has been deemed the fastest face changing artist in the country by state-run China Central Television.
