Photographer's Note

This is a lamp created by ancient Chinese, there are many versions in the museum. Here we can see an aquatic bird taking a fish. The flame would be located in a hole in the other side, in that cylinder. The smoke produced would go up to the head of the bird and obligated it to cross its body, filled with water, letting there the pollution and permitting the air was clear.
This piece was created during Western Han dynasty (between 202 BC and 24 BC).

Essa é uma lâmpada criada pelos antigos chineses, existem muitas versões no museu. Vemos aqui uma ave aquática com um peixe na boca. A chama estaria localizada num buraco naquele cilindro, depois a fumaça subiria até a cabeça o bicho e desceria até o corpo, que estaria cheio de água, a fumaça deixaria ali seus elementos tóxicos e o ar estaria limpo.
Essa peça foi criada durante a dinastia Han Ocidental (entre 202 AC e 24 AC).
