Chinese Ovoid Earthenware Storage Vessel

About

Rustically shaped, this terracotta vase looks like an ethnographic find. The decoration is sparse and gestural, including dashed and splattered strokes, broad translucent patches and smudged sections. Beautifully modern and archaic at the same time, its origin date is unknown.
