Lid for Bamboo Shoot-shaped Ewer

청자 죽순형 뚜껑 (靑瓷竹筍形蓋)

1100s

Earthenware with carved designs and celadon glaze

Gift of Sebastian Izzard 1998.289

Description

Natural motifs inspired both the shape of celadon vessels as well as their inlaid designs in the Goryeo period. This wine ewer is shaped like a bamboo shoot, but it also resembles a lotus bud. Even though the spout was repaired, the ewer is a celadon masterpiece of the Goryeo period.
