Abstract:
Largely in the shape of a melon, this celadon ovoid-shaped ewer is integrally modeled with bamboo ribs in high relief. The individual ribs grow thinner or thicker following the curves of the body. The glaze in the grooves between the ribs is a darker color, which serves to throw the raised design into even greater relief. The body also has a motif of shooting bamboo leaves incised. The vessel comes with a tall conical lid, a curving spout and a loop handle.
