The creativity of artistic production during the Middle Kingdom is vast and highly appreciated, but still far from fully understood.
The studies presented in this volume aim to present this extraordinary output of two and three-dimensional artworks in a critical reevaluation
of old ideas and convictions while advancing new methods and exchanging ideas. The core of “Change and Innovation” is looking at traditions,
seeking answers to changes, and hoping to provide a better understanding of the concept of the salient characteristics of Middle Kingdom art.
