This Murano Glass figure, like all others, was handcrafted using ancient glassblowing techniques. Murano glass artists used the Massello and Calcedonio methods to create this artwork of a Chinese man kneeling.The Caledonia process is responsible for the vibrant, shimmering colours. For the colouring, a mixture of different metal oxides is added to the hot liquid glass before it cools.

Ethnic figures are a classic theme in Murano glass production, due to the contacts that the Repulic of Venice had built with far countries, such as China. Here maestro Tagliapietra celebrates that bond with a stylized sculpture of a kneeling Chinese figure.
Its shimmering colors are due to the calcedonio technique. The coloring effect is obtained by adding to the molten glass a mixture based on different metal oxides. The results are incredible.
