Chinese Phoenix Vase - WanliBoxwoodLane.com
Chinese bottle vase that appears to have an apocryphal Wanli period mark from the Ming Dynasty with the actual production date likely being later. Very nice depiction of a Phoenix, or Fenghuang. This bird was a popular subject in eastern Asia. It's a mythical bird that reigned over all other birds and is recognized as a symbol of high virtue and grace. Its body symbolizes the celestial bodies with the head representing the sky, the eyes are the sun, the back is the moon, the wings are the wind, the feet are the earth, and the tail is the planets. It's represented on two sides of this unique vase.
- Measures about 13" tall.
- Hand painted.
