Cognitive Interpretation of Decorative Symbols of Chinese Export Porcelain in Ming and Qing Dynasties

Yuchen LI


The Ming and Qing Dynasties were the heyday of Chinese porcelain export. With the export of porcelain, Chinese porcelain and porcelain making technology gradually spread all over the world and became the sign and symbol of Chinese culture. The decorative symbols of Chinese porcelain are rich and diverse, which has had a far-reaching cultural impact on export countries and regions. Therefore, the porcelain exchanges between China and other countries in the world through the “the Belt and Road” are essentially a process of mutual influence and reproduction of the art and culture of different civilizations. By interpreting the process of understanding and accepting the artistic theme and decorative symbols of Chinese porcelain by overseas audiences, this paper discusses the cultural influence of Chinese porcelain on countries along the “the Belt and Road”.
