Chinese Blue and White Minggua Garden Seat

About

This beautiful ceramic garden stool is shaped in the traditional drum form and covered with intricate blue-and-white designs. The drum is adorned with a mountainous landscape scene, painted in the expressive style of traditional calligraphy landscape paintings, known as "shan shui." A pattern of boss-head nails borders the scene, resembling those used to stretch the skin on an actual drum. The top and sides are perforated by eternal coin motifs, symbols of prosperity and good fortune. An unusual find, this blue-and-white stool looks lovely tucked in foliage as a garden seat or side table.
