Pair of Chinese Temple Vessels


This ceramic vessel was handcrafted in the Jiangxi region of China in the spirit of ancient temple jars. The style and glaze is reminiscent of Han dynasty burial vessels, and the lids are shaped like Buddhist temples surrounded by birds, offerings, and people with hands clasped in meditation.
