This magnificent mother of pearl work on a pottery jar illustrates a gold dragon on one side and a blue dragon on the other side in the depths of the clouds. The forceful movements of the animals are captured so vividly that they look as if they will break out of the jar.

The dragon is an imaginary animal believed to rule the sky and the sea, controlling rain, clouds, lightening and water. Also used as a symbol of kingship, the dragon is revered in many Asian countries as a sacred animal that brings fortune and expels evil forces. The elaborate adornment with the iridescence of intricate mother of pearl designs makes it a breathtaking piece for collection.
