藏品/雕塑/三彩琉璃手托兔人像瓦三彩琉璃手托兔人像瓦,明,瓦长11.5cm,口宽11.5cm,通高35.5cm。 瓦背为大臣立像,双手交叉,怀中抱兔。瓦身侧面刻“卯”字,即兔所对应的地支。故宫收藏的此类瓦件还有鼠、牛、蛇、马、羊、猴、猪等七种不同生肖,瓦上人物相似,动物有别,可称之为生肖瓦。采用手持生肖动物或人身生肖动物首的形象来表达十二生肖的做法在我国有悠久的传统。该瓦为三彩琉璃瓦,出自山西,与传统皇家琉璃瓦常用龙、凤、狮子、海马等不同,而是采用官员、仕女等形象,人物刻画逼真写实,衣服纹样及其配饰都详细勾画,栩栩如生。就类型和尺度而言,此件琉璃瓦为筒瓦,用在建筑屋脊之上,瓦小而高,稳定性较差,因而此瓦主要是为了突出艺术效果而非实用性,这为我们研究琉璃建材的用途提供了新的分类实证。
