5th Century Korean Gaya Kingdom Water Jar. The Gaya were a confederation of tribes in the central southern coast of Korea, with their own unique culture and art. Coil-built and wheel-thrown (built from coils and then completed on the wheel) stoneware with a bulbous body marked with a highly visible rope impressed design, a tall flared neck incised with three equally spaced horizontal bands made of twin turned ridges separating three areas of wavy incised patterns, culminating in a delicately delineated rim. The neck is tall to prevent spilling the water inside while carrying the jar. The color is grayish blue-beige, the modulated gray coloring due to carbon trapping inherent in reduction firing (this is the intentional reduction of oxygen in the kiln). Traces of sugary-appearing incidental natural wood ash glaze deposited on the shoulder of the pot during wood firing. The silica in the wood ash that blows through the kiln causes this accidental but desirable effect. A couple of flea bite (very minor) chips on the rim which do not detract from the overall beauty of the vessel, otherwise Very Good Condition. This jar has a very strong visual presence as well as a sense of ancient Korean history. 8.5 inches (21.5cm) height x 21 inches (53.5cm) circumference.

Antique Korean Dragon Painting Exploding with Life and Personality, Chasing the Magic Pearl of Immortality. Korean dragons are not at all stereotypical. Each one has a unique personality. This fine and dynamic example is a marvelous rendering of Korea's most beloved ancient deity, the dragon rain god who brings both rain and good fortune. His face is delightful and his body writhes with energy, as he chases through the sky after the red flaming jewel of transcendent wisdom, symbolizing the pursuit of knowledge. Because he brings rain, which gives life and growth to all living things, the dragon is a symbol of creation, growth, and fertility. Therefore, the dragon god was the most important deity in the old agrarian Korean society. When Koreans prayed to the mighty dragon for rain and blessings, this is the type of dragon to which they hoped to be praying. This is truly Korean folk art at it's very best! Ink and colors on paper. Newly and Beautifully Framed and Silk-Mounted. Frame: 37 x 28 inches, 94 x 71 cm; Painting: 28 x 19.5 inches, 71 x 49.5 cm.

Korean Antique Blue Porcelain Fish Form Water Dropper. The fish was a Confucian and Buddhist symbol of tireless dedication and constant vigilance, because fish never close their eyes, even when they are sleeping. The water dropper was one of the Joseon Dynasty scholar's most prized possessions. He would use it to mix his ink when writing letters, painting, and writing poetry. A scholar's water dropper was a symbol of his refinement and good taste. In keeping with the Korean Confucian gentleman's aesthetic, artifice and colorful designs that catered to base instincts were to be avoided, while a natural and deep respect for nature was to be upheld. This lovely water dropper in a fish shape was likely treasured by its 19th Century owner. 3 X 2.5 X 1 inches, 7.5 x 6.5 x 2.5 cm.
