Graced with energetic dragons amid clouds, this deep bowl has a petal-shaped rim. The coiled position of the dragon in the center and the chasing action of those on the sides contribute to a sense of circular motion. The exterior shows a running figure and two birds in flight, echoing the movement in the interior.
