A brilliant example of Koryo celadon, this pear-shaped ewer (from the twelfth/ thirteenth century) conforms to the rules of classicism, such as well-balanced form, stability of structure, and mastery of technique. The harmonious mood it conveys encourages thoughtful observation. Is the glaze color blue or green? Is there a pattern of lotus sprays delicately incised on the body of the ewer that is barely visible through the translucent glaze?
