Why this is a
Masterpiece

Only few blue and white vases of the Yuan Dynasty exist at present. With superb craftsmanship, with wonderful designs telling a story, and a beautiful shape, this vase is regarded as one of the finest of its kind. The story embodied in the picture is about a general named Mengtian (who died in 210 BCE). The style of the clothes which the figures wear such as the cape and boots as well as other properties follow what was fashionable in the Yuan Dynasty.
