This blue and white ceramic bird water bottle displays an elegant form containing a pair of sparrows perched on a branch of a maehwa (Korean plum) tree. This work is faithful in following the Korean tradition of using white porcelain as a vehicle to artistically express a lyrical depiction of nature. The subsidiary design at the back captures evergreen bamboo, one of the "four noble beings" (sagunja), symbolizing loyalty as its leaves and stalks stay green throughout the seasons.

Blue and white porcelain wares of Korea are marked by an elegant form presenting a design of unrestrained brush strokes in perfect harmony with the negative space surrounding it. The beauty of elegance and spirituality emanating from the Korean blue and white porcelain is often compared with its Chinese counterpart, which is characterized by luxurious designs nearly comprising the entire surface.
