Why this is a
Masterpiece

Seeing that the handle (knob) attached to the lid has the shape of a tower, one can conclude that the Buddhist tradition has exerted influence upon the manufacture of the bone jar. The comb pattern and concentric circles finely incised on the lid suggest contemporary people's beliefs about death and resurrection.

History of the Object
This was excavated in Aju-dong, Geoje City. While tilling his field, Cheolgi Lee discovered it and then kept it. Later, he donated it to Geoje Museum.
