Qilin Lidded Jar

Qilin Lidded Jar


The qilin is a Chinese mythical creature, said to appear in times of prosperity or serenity. Depicted here in three panels on this lidded vessel, the qilin is surrounded by ocean waves, an element of Buddhist lore that says the qilin will not harm even a blade of grass and thus walks on air or water.
