Liu Jie works on the replica of Bakohan at his studio in Longquan, East China's Zhejiang province, May 7, 2020. Liu Jie, 35 and a renowned ceramist in Longquan, began to replicate Bakohan since 2019. He has so far made over 500 replicas in an effort to approach perfection. "I wish to replicate its beauty." said Liu. Bakohan is a tea bowl made in Longquan, China, and gifted to Japan during the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279). During the era of Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Bakouhan was found to have cracks and was then sent to China to be fixed. The bowl is now displayed in the Tokyo National Museum.[Photo/Xinhua]
