Therefore, ceramics (Figure 2 - 39) and folk culture is very close, showing a strong folk culture characteristics, widely reflecting the social life of the people of our country, the world and the people's aesthetic concepts.

Therefore, the performance of celebration, happiness and auspicious themes, since ancient times and today, has been an important theme of ceramics and a basic cultural characteristics.

Auspicious theme, mainly around the "blessing, prosperity, longevity, happiness, and harmony, good luck and good fortune" and other content and start. Therefore, in the choice of themes to express the moral, often choose the following things: rare birds, often choose the phoenix (king of birds, symbolizing great wealth and prosperity, great luck, phoenix together metaphor for love), white cranes (noble, pure, longevity of the metaphor), white head, magpies, Yuanyang, eagles; flowers, often choose peonies (the king of flowers, symbolizing the rich and prosperous) Hibiscus (symbol of grace and splendor), Lotus, Plum Blossom Chrysanthemum; in the category of aromatic herbs, often choose orchids (the metaphor of fragrant ancestors, orchids, grandchildren, noble son) Lingzhi (symbolizing longevity); bamboo and wood, often choose pine (symbolizing longevity, temperament).

Such as lotus give birth to noble son (baby holding lotus), blessed with longevity (bat shouji), bamboo report peace (children play firecrackers), good luck (children riding a white elephant holding ruyi), happy (plum blossom magpies), blessed in front of the eyes (bats, magpies) six contracts spring (deer, cranes, plum blossom) unicorn sends a son (children riding the unicorn), year after year of surplus (lotus, fish), five sons to get into the imperial examinations (five small children), the heavenly officials to give blessings (heavenly palace, bats), Five blessings to hold life (five bats around the word life), many blessings and longevity (a group of bats, life peach) Fuku, Shou (old man riding a deer holding a peach), Ma Gu Xianshou (Ma Gu bear a basket of peaches), the fish jumped out of the Dragon Gate, Danfeng Chaoyang (phoenix, the sun), the dragon winds present auspicious (dragon, phoenix) and so on.

Legend has it that when King Zhou of the Shang Dynasty was about to die and King Wen of the Zhou Dynasty was about to rise, people used the phoenix to express their good wishes for the coming of a wise king, and the record of "the phoenix singing at Qishan Mountain of the Western Zhou Dynasty" is a reflection of this legend.

Ancient Chinese society is based on blood relations as a unit of society, and as a basis for the corresponding hometown. Therefore, the desire to honor the ancestors, the family prosperity, wealth and glory has become a universal social psychology. In the auspicious subject matter in many of the contents of this ocean. Auspicious theme of the birth, and the ancestors of nature worship of the primitive faith has a close relationship. The appearance of certain cloud patterns and fish patterns is closely related to the praise of nature. The emergence of auspicious birds and beasts, but also the people of our country caress all things, and all things with its rhythm of a reflection.

Auspicious theme of the birth of a national psychological performance, but also a kind of national culture and national philosophy. Chinese national psychology and culture is the biggest influence of Confucianism. Confucianism is talking about the integration of man and nature, that the relationship between man and nature is not a kind of antagonistic relationship, but a kind of affinity with the relationship, giving flowers, birds, insects, fish, beasts and so on to auspicious symbols, is the performance of this kind of affinity with the relationship.
