Preface:

Ordinary articles in common use in China by the largest population in the world have already become symbolized objects. But how many people, to be exact, have ever noticed their cultural values? If every article has its objective denotation and connotation, then tens of thousands of Chinese stuff must have cohered into a unique cultural system beyond their own physical properties, a system of objects which is infused with psychic energy and possesses cultural properties.
