The Tao used the clay that was left over following the production of pots, to create dolls and figures for entertainment. These were made by hand-molding the clay. The subject matter was usually related to everyday life, and featured simple animal and human shapes. Complicated gestures of the characters were represented by simple lines to create a 3D look, a unique characteristic of craft art of the Tao.
