The Age of Peace and Prosperity

Xu Yin


The neck of the piece is decorated with four ascending dragons, braced to leap and take flight. The gaping mouth faces the sky and the ample belly stands magnanimous. The vessel is a pertinent symbol of prosperity and accordance. The soaring dragons imply that no matter the vastness of the sky or depth of the earth, all men, obeying the will of heaven, will live in harmony and joyfully celebrate this magnificent era of prosperity.
