Lot Details
A rare wucai 'Kuixing' brushpot
The slightly concaved foot with a small circular hollowed base, the cylindrical body plain on the inside, the exterior enamelled with a continuous scene of the God of examinations riding on a dragon, the hunchbacked deity standing on one feet with his left hand holding an ink palette and a brush in his right, full of energy and vigor wearing loose garments and billowing scarf, looking towards the distant sun and wispy clouds, the dragon thrashing about in raging sea with a few lotus blossoms floating helplessly within violent waves.
14cm high.
