Blue and White Scholars' Scene Ginger Jar

$1,480

About

Working within the time-honored tradition of Chinese blue-and-white ceramics, this lidded ginger jar depicts a Qing-dynasty man engaged in the four arts he must master to become a renowned scholar. Separated by screen motifs with an eternal coin pattern, the jar depicts a scholar painting a mountainous landscape, writing poetic calligraphy, playing the ancient strategy game of Go, and playing the qin, a traditional stringed instrument.
