The Dutch copied Chinese porcelain painting techniques, but put their own spin on it by creating these tulip pyramids. Later, the Chinese made cheap copies, which the Dutch East India Company then imported. So it’s kind of like a copy of a copy of a copy. This tulip pyramid is almost as tall as I am. It comes apart in sections for shipping and storage, which makes it easy to pour water into each segment without springing a leak out the openings.
