Yi Lacquers: Eternal Three Colors and Eternal Beauty
The ancestors of Yi people lived by pasture so that they had to migrate often, which determined that their living goods must be smartly chosen as light, easy-carrying and easy-approaching ones. Then wood, bamboo and leather that could be found in the pasturing highland became their prior raw materials to make living goods. Besides, though these goods were made without any other processing like lacquering, they could be well preserved. With the improvement of Yi people’s life, the craftsmanship of producing these wooden and leather products has also been improved, becoming an indivisible part of the Yi culture and the Chinese culture and the most important and precioushistoric resources for us to research the Yi culture.
