The three porcelain plates with original paintings by Kim Ki Chang aka Unbo (1913 - 2001) that we offer here on our website are the only painted ceramics by the revered master that we have seen offered for sale. They were all acquired from the same collection and are sublime examples of his unique style. Don't miss this rare opportunity to acquire an original painting in this lustrous medium by one of Korea's most famous artists. Lotus Blossoms, Ducks, and Fish: 14 inches (35.5 cm) wide, 2 inches (4 cm) deep with lipped rim. This image is filled with ancient and profound symbolism. The lotus represents purity and rebirth, because it rises above the muck of the pond to show its face to the Sun. The ducks symbolize eternal faithfulness, because it was believed ducks mated for life. The fish is a symbol of tireless dedication and constant vigilance, because fish never close their eyes, even when they are sleeping.
