Li Shangchun's first innovated the famille rose oil painting ceramic works which won unanimous praise from everyone who sees them. The Jiangxi Satellite TV has done a special report on this twice.
Making famille rose ceramic plaque painting is more difficult than traditional paper painting, because it has to be fired twice in the kiln and there are risks of cracking or deforming. However, the colour enamels used in ceramic plaque painting are more stable and the texture is stronger. Ceramic plaque painting has more layering and three-dimensional sense than paper painting. Moreover, it can be permanently preserved, avoiding insect bites and weathering.
Maternity is the love and care from mothers towards their children. Maternity is often depicted as graceful, selfless and mighty. The icy cold background and warm mother love in this famille rose ceramic plaque painting have great contrasts which stress the greatness of mother love.
