A Bird of Literacy

A Bird of Literacy

Materials

L13.0 x W5.7x H14 cm

The concept behind the design is borrowed from the Stone Bird of the Shang Dynasty (Late 14th-mid 11th century B.C.). It has a curved beak, a decorative crest and a smooth body shape. Based on the wooden remains and the stone chime excavated nearby, this is assumed to be an ornament on the chime stand. With the chime stand now transformed into branches for it to rest, the bird is now given a streamlined body made from wood and its beak is manifested by the pen itself. A Bird of Literacy is more than an ornament but a practical writing utensil.
