A Longquan celadon grotto
The brown clay covered in a thick vitreous translucent glaze of olive green hue and intricately potted to depict Guanyin wearing flowing robes and bedecked with jewels and seated in the lalitasana posture upon a high plinth within the interior of an elaborate shelter of lithe tendrils enmeshing a parrot and a vase all above a churning sea; the entire edifice now supported by and mounted upon a waisted gilt metal platform lighting fixture (firing cracks, losses).
