Stoneware with green celadon glaze. Circular, shallow bowl with in-turned flat tim resting on three small feet in the shape of monster heads in very thick, heavy stoneware with moulded decoration in relief under a semi-trasparent green celadon glaze. A circular area inside in the centre and on the base has been left underglazes, showing the dark-red colour of the stoneware after oxidisation during firing. In the centre the circular area was impresses with a geometric motif. On the outside is a relief moulded decoration depicting the "Eight Trigrams" (ba gua), symbols composed of three broken or unbroken lines each, associated to daoist cosmology and to a divinatory system. The shape of this tripod bowls derived from bronze incense burners and they serve the same propose. This type of bowl has also been described as a bulb bowl, since it may have been used to hold bulbs of flowers such as narcissus or hyacinths. The form is alread documented in celadon ware dating back to the Northern Song period (see the example illustrated in Hobson 1976 [1st ed. 1915], pl. 40, no. 1); it was revisited in the Yan and Ming period and subsequently also copied in porcelain by the Dehua kilns. A very similar bowl from the Seliman Collection in the British Museum (5088)
