This white porcelain temple jar features reddish-brown long life emblem (crane, pine, rock, cloud and bamboo) design in underglaze iron. Unlike the cobalt blue design, which is characterized by noble and elegant beauty, the design of the oxidized iron displays simple, abstract forms seized by energetic brush strokes. The design of underglaze iron against the pure white glaze creates the unique ambiance that gave Joseon (1392-1910) white porcelain ware a worldwide reputation.

One of the most favored designs for Korean art traditionally has been sipjangsaeng, 10 creatures that ancient Koreans, influenced by the Taoist philosophy, believed were created to enjoy eternal youth: sun, stone, water, cloud, pine tree, bamboo, bulnocho ('herb of eternal youth'), turtle, crane, and mountain.
