MANILA – The Ayala Museum and the Oriental Ceramics Society of the Philippines are currently holding an exhibit of antique Chinese ceramics.
The exhibit “Fujian Ware Found in the Philippines” showcases a wide range of ceramics from the Song-Yuan period (11th to the 14th century) in the southeastern Chinese province of Fujian.
These were exported to the country around 700 to 900 years ago and are considered “the most telling witnesses of the active participation of the Philippines in the thriving maritime trade in the South China Sea.”
Around 150 pieces on loan from museums as well as 30 private collections are on display in the exhibit, which will run until October 1 at the Ayala Museum’s ground floor gallery.
