"D**gzhi" (冬至) is a significant solar term in traditional Chinese culture, marking the winter solstice, usually falling around December 21st. It signifies the arrival of winter's zenith, when the sun reaches its lowest point in the sky and daylight is at its shortest in the Northern Hemisphere.

Symbolically, D**gzhi represents the end of darkness and the gradual return of light. It's a time for family reunion and celebration, emphasizing the importance of harmony and unity. Traditionally, people gather with their families to enjoy special foods like tangyuan (sweet dumplings) or hearty, warming meals, signifying the coming together of loved ones and the sharing of blessings.
Beyond its cultural significance, D**gzhi carries agricultural importance as well. It marks the start of longer days, symbolizing the gradual return of warmth and the lengthening of daylight hours. In ancient times, it was a crucial marker for farmers to prepare for the cold season, ensuring the preservation of food and livestock.
The balance between light and dark during D**gzhi is often seen as a metaphor for the balance in life, emphasizing the cyclical nature of existence and the importance of finding harmony amidst change. Celebrating D**gzhi is not just about welcoming winter but also about appreciating the cyclical rhythms of nature and the unity of family and community.

While jade carving is often associated with China, India too, has a tradition of jade carving. It was the Mughals who introduced this art form to India. Mughal sources of jade came principally from Kashgar, in Central Asia. This charming Mughal jade bottle is made in the shape of a swan with its head turned back to look over its full, bud-shaped body. The turned neck forms a hook that allows the bottle to be secured or suspended from a belt. The sides of the body are finely carved with lappets incised to resemble feathers. A screw top with a bud finial forms the tail of the swan. The mouth of the opening is encircled with overlapping bands of feather lappets. Metal bands inlaid with semi-precious stones encircle the swan’s neck and the base of the tail. The eyes are also inlaid with semi-precious stones. Mughal jade vessels are known for having extremely thin walls, and another characteristic is the embellishment of the jade objects with metal mounts, precious stones and crystal.

Da Xue, or "Major Snow," is the 21st solar term in the traditional Chinese calendar, marking the time when winter's grasp tightens, and the temperatures drop significantly. Falling around December 7th or 8th, this period signifies the arrival of heavier snowfall and colder weather in many regions of China.

[MUSEUM COLLECTION]

During Da Xue, the atmosphere often becomes tranquil, with serene landscapes blanketed in snow, creating a picturesque scene of quiet beauty. It's a time when nature seems to slow down, as many animals enter hibernation, and plants lie dormant, preparing for the harsher winter ahead.

In ancient times, Da Xue was crucial for preparing for the coldest months. People would focus on activities like preserving food, repairing tools, and reinforcing homes to withstand the harsh weather conditions. Additionally, it was a time to gather with family, share warmth, and celebrate the upcoming festivities, fostering a sense of community and togetherness.

Although modern lifestyles have altered some of the traditional practices associated with Da Xue, the essence of this solar term remains rooted in the acknowledgment of nature's rhythms and the necessity of preparation and unity in the face of winter's challenges.

Porcelain jars painted with cobalt-blue dragons were popular in Korea from the seventeenth through the nineteenth century. Although the dragon motif has its origins in China, the uninhibited style of painting, the use of open space in the decoration, and the slightly irregular form of the vase, identifies this piece as Korean. Large vases like this were used to hold flower arrangements during official ceremonies. The sides of this vase are freely painted with a four-clawed dragon in pursuit of a flaming pearl amid clouds, between a formal cloud border encircling the base and a band of ruyi around the neck.

Join HMAA in the celebration of the 2024 New Year with a special exhibit, ICON, which explores the multi-cultural figure, the Buddha, and its representation as an icon. This exhibit explores the deep and complex relationships that the Buddha has respectively with the East and the West. The artist, Xingrui Xu, implements a “blurring” technique within his practice that blurs the boundaries between different cultures, intervenes in iconic symbols, and emphasizes a mixture of tradition and anti-tradition within his work.

As the chill deepens and frosty whispers linger in the air, China welcomes the arrival of "Xiao Xue," the period known as Minor Snow. Falling between November 22nd and 23rd, this solar term signals the onset of a colder phase, a prelude to the imminent winter.

During Xiao Xue, nature unveils its wintry palette, as temperatures plummet and the first delicate snowflakes descend, blanketing landscapes in a soft, crystalline embrace. This ethereal veil heralds the slumber of flora and fauna alike, as the natural world readies itself for the season's icy grasp.
For generations, this solar term has guided agricultural rhythms, prompting farmers to conclude their autumn tasks and prepare for winter. Fields lay dormant under the snowy veil, while stores of harvested crops ensure sustenance through the colder months ahead.

This Buddha form is associated with Mandalay in the late 19th century. The Buddha was originally covered with lacquer and then gilded. The hands of the Buddha are in the earth touching mudra. The Buddha is calling on the earth to bear witness for him, while his legs are in the diamond or lotus position. In Buddhism the image of the Buddha is treated as if it were the Buddha himself. The head of this Buddha once had a crown that was topped by a tall pinnacle: the Buddha in his headdress is referred to as the “crowned and adorned” image. There are remainders of the glass inserts on the headband that are supposed to resemble jewels.

Li D**g, also known as "立冬" in Mandarin, marks the official start of autumn in the celestial calendar. It's a time when nature paints its canvas with the warm hues of russet leaves, creating a mesmerizing tapestry of colors.
During Li D**g, the temperature gradually drops, encouraging us to bundle up in our favorite scarves and savor steaming cups of tea or a comforting bowl of hot soup. It's a moment to appreciate the simple joys of life, to gather around the table with loved ones, and to find warmth in the embrace of the changing seasons.

Vessels supported on legs were used for cooking, storage, and for making ritual offerings to gods and ancestors. The earliest of these vessels, called ding, were made of clay, and date to the Neolithic period. The best known ding however, are the bronze examples from the Shang and Zhou dynasties. During the Zhou period, changes to social and religious practices deemphasized the ritual uses of ding, and their function shifted from solely religious to more secular. The Zhou elites used the ding to announce status, and included them in their burials as a display of status to the living and the spirits in the afterlife. The higher the number of ding buried in the grave, the higher the status of the deceased, with emperors being buried with a maximum of nine.

The Archaic Bronze Ritual Tripod Vessel, or "Ding," is an essential part of Chinese culture, often associated with ancestral worship and important rituals. Li D**g, as a solar term, marks the beginning of winter and the transition to a colder season. This change in climate was significant in ancient China, especially for agricultural and cultural practices. It was during this time that people would use "Ding" vessels for rituals, ceremonies, and offerings to honor their ancestors and seek their blessings for a successful harvest.

The Li D**g solar term and the Archaic Bronze Ritual Tripod Vessel and Cover are connected through their shared cultural and historical significance. Li D**g marked a time of transition and reverence, and "Ding" vessels played a vital role in the rituals and traditions of ancient Chinese society during this period. They serve as a tangible link to the past and a testament to the enduring importance of cultural heritage.

Solar Term-Forest’s Descent Shuangjiang, also known as "霜降" in Mandarin, translates to "The Arrival of Frost." As the name suggests, this solar term signifies the transition from autumn to winter.
In traditional Chinese philosophy, the concept of "Double Yang" is central to Shuangjiang. Yang represents warmth and energy, and during this solar term, the Yang energy diminishes while Yin, the cooler, passive energy, gains strength. It's a reminder of the cyclical nature of life and an invitation to find balance and harmony in this seasonal shift.
During Shuangjiang, trees shed their remaining leaves, signaling their preparation for winter. The world quiets down as animals and plants alike ready themselves for the cold season ahead. It's a time of introspection, a moment to gather one's thoughts and nurture

Deer are often associated with hunting, as they were a significant source of food and materials in ancient China. The arrival of frost signified the time to engage in hunting activities, especially as animals, including deer, became more accessible due to the frosty ground.
In traditional Chinese culture, deer are regarded as a symbol of longevity, good fortune, and happiness. The Shuangjiang solar term, despite its association with frost and the approaching winter, can also be seen as a time of renewal and preparation. Deer, being a symbol of longevity, could represent the hope for a long and prosperous life in the coming winter.
In Taoism, which has a deep influence on Chinese culture, the deer is considered a sacred animal. I

Artwork Spotlight:

Maitreya Stele
Sui Dynasty (581-618)
China

Buddhist art is rich in iconography. This allows us to identify the buddhas and attendant figures in works of art. The figure in this stele is Maitreya, who is the Buddha of the future. We know that this is
Maitreya because of his crossed-ankle pose. This pose is derived from and adopted from Gandharan images of Maitreya.

Pure Land Buddhism was very popular in China. Pure Land Buddhism offered
the chance of rebirth into a paradise realm. The idea of residing in a
heaven/paradise was enticing during times of turmoil. In this sculpture,
we see Bodhisattva Maitreya. He is residing in Tusita Paradise, where he
awaits the time of Ketumati-the time of his rebirth in the human realm. The commissioner of this sculpture would have aspired to be reborn in Maitreya’s paradise of Tusita in his/her next life.

Buddhist steles like these were very popular in China, especially in the
Northern Wei Dynasty through the Sui. There are features that are distinctly Chinese, such as the crown and the garments worn by the bodhisattva, including the ring in the front of his robe.
