Inner snuff bottle painting is a unique form of art. It is acknowledged as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. The origin of the inner snuff bottle painting can be traced to Ming and Ching dynasty. The technique of the inner painting is to insert a specially designed slender pen with a bend at the tip through the neck, together with an accomplished artist working in the tight space of the bottle cavity which enables the pen to etch vivid designs and calligraphy onto the inner surface of the bottle. This brings a tremendous challenge to artist’s sharp eye sight and the precision of the hand. The result is an array of exquisite miniatures of landscapes, still life, portraits and calligraphy that delight many collectors. The inner painting is one of the most representative artworks of China.
