Why this is a
Masterpiece

A large stately vessel with a wonderful sense of volume, this jar was produced around the time Buncheong ware (porcelain covered in white slip) appeared in the Joseon period. It employs a good mix of incised and inlaid designs, and is a masterpiece showing the characteristic vitality and beauty of Buncheong. It is designated as Korean National Treasure No. 259.

History of the Object
The influence of the Yuan dynasty on China is evident in the ruyi design around the shoulders, the lotus panels around the base, and the dragon embellishing the body. The bold, dynamic expression of the dragon, however, is characteristic of the Buncheong wares of the Joseon period.
