    The invention of lamps and lanterns has close relationship
    with the fact that people got to undersdand and made use of
    fire. The invention of lamps and lanterns presupposes human
    being’s cognition and preservation of fire. Darkness has never
    been our friends since remote past. It does not only limits
    people’s vaious activities but also makes good chances for
    beasts to attack people. Try to imagine how our ancestors who
    lived in primitive forests sworn at darkness.. Several hundred
    thousand years ago, as human beings kept improving their
    understanding of the function of natural fire, fire became
    people’s treature to eat prepared food and the only tool for
    lighting and dispelling darkness. In the long time of living
    experiences and when the way of artificially collecting fire
    was found, people initiated borrowing some auxiliary devices
    to fix fire source for different needs. These auxiliary device
    used to fix fire source underwent constant renovation and
    evolution, finally, special-purpose lamps and lanterns for
    linghting came into being.

    The earliest lamps of China appeared in the Warring States.
    Since then, the development has never stopped. Lamps and lanterns
    and their models in dynasties were unearthed and discovered in the
    whole nation. Plenty of archaeological statistics show that the
    ancient China lamps and lanterns feature varieties of types and
    obvious functions as well as different trendency of times. Many of
    them deserve to be called elegant artistic wares with novel style
    and special shape. These lamps and lanterns not only provide real
    object materials for us to research the development of China ancient
    lamps and lanterns but also embody the folk cultural details in
    different times. Particularsly since the custom of hanging lanterns
    on 15th of the 1st lunar month happened in Han Dynasty, lantern
    making has never undergone recession in any dynasties. Till today
    when modern lamps and lanterns have been highly advanced, lanterns
    are the must articles for people to celebrate lantern festival once
    a year.
