Title: Chinese Cangue
Information: Three representation of the Chinese cangue made on a same model, reworked by Western arists. The Chinese characters of the original have been scrupulously reproduced, very likely by a Chinese hand. The 2nd and 3rd image might be Chinese copy of the 1st, produced by the collaboration of Cantonese Pu-quà workshop and the British engraver Dadley (see the spoon and bowl, figuring the impediment to self feeding that the cangue was supposed to cause).
