Confucianism is often thought of as promoting a rigid and formal understanding of the relationship of human beings to one another and to government, not the kind of ethos that we think of as promoting a lively tradition of art.  Yet the form of Confucianism that emerges in China’s Song Dynasty (960-1279) integrates insights of Daoism and Buddhism and has produced works of art that reflect this dynamic integration.
