Monumental Chinese Blue and White Qilin Ginger Jar

About

This monumental blue and white ginger jar, which was originally intended for storing spices, is hand-painted with a shizi topper (otherwise known as a Fu dog), which symbolizes power and strength of character; and clouds, which represent heaven. Among the clouds are qilin, Chinese mythical creatures symbolizing magnificence, joy and benevolence, its Chinese blue and white style has inspired ceramists worldwide since cobalt was first introduced to China from the Middle East thousands of years ago.
