  Bo Ai’, 1920s 
  Inscription by Dr. Sun Yat Sen  |  Hong Kong Museum of History Collection

Dr. Sun Yat Sen was not only a politician but also an advocate of humanitarian values. In many occasions he wrote ‘Bo’ ai’ or ‘universal love’ in Chinese, in his calligraphy and presented his works to friends and supporters. The character for ‘Bo’ is embossed on the outside of the ceramic cup while ‘Ai’ is found at the base to symbolise the subtlety of love. This brilliant tableware reminds us of the importance of love and kindness.
