Why this is a
Masterpiece

A dragon is represented in a very unique style on both sides of the pot by using an inlaid technique. This style of dragon representation is very rare and is considered as a dragon with a human character. The peaceful and man-like image of dragon is loved by people. That is the main reason for picking it as a masterpiece.

History of the Object
The round gourd-shaped kettle is inlaid with dragon, chrysanthemum and lotus designs. It is covered with grayish green celadon glaze. The lid and spout are restored. The oldest Goryo celadon which has been recovered so far is the celadon jar produced in 993. In the beginning of the 11th century, the design and form of Goryo celadon became more graceful and artistic. Inlaid celadon began to be developed in the 12th century and reached its summit in the 13th century, but towards the end of the century the quality of Goryo celadon gradually declined.
