Han Dynasty Glazed Hill Jar

$ 3,300
  • Description
    Han earthenware celedon glazed hill jar

    The hill jar represents the five sacred mountains which is the path between the earth and Paradise. The mountains are filled with animals that live there. This jar might also represent either Mount Bo or Mount Kunlun, two sacred Daoist mountains, and evokes the journey of the deceased to the immortal realms.

    The animals of the four directions (sishen) that provide celestial navigation are strategically placed in the undulating peaks of the mountain. The legs of the vessel are formed by auspicious bears, which were popular in Han-dynasty art for their protective power. This particular jar with intricate cross hatch design around base and lid.

    We have another hill jar represented on this site and would be happy to make them a set for serious collectors.
