Shang Dynasty-style Clay Animals
In art, we have been learning about Shang-style artwork in the form of jade and bronze work. We took inspiration from their animal ornaments and created our own models designed to represent a courage, loyalty, strength etc. In order to ensure our models would not easily fall apart, we formed our pieces from a single lump of clay, moulding and managing it to create the head, limbs and other key features.
