The Emperor Wu Temple Jar, a timeless Chinese porcelain classic, depicts a fearsome dragon in cobalt blue on white.
An incense musk wafts from the doorway of the grand pagoda, where rows of robed eunuchs bow before a host of resplendent dignitaries. They are paying their respects to the late Emperor Wu.
Wu presided over a golden age for Chinese culture. The arts flourished under decades of peace and stability. Wu proved that a peaceful, united China was possible, and his successors strived to emulate his achievement. The hand-painted blue dragon pattern takes inspiration from Mongolian designs, with a splash of Manchurian, so if your room is going for a cultural feel, this jar will be a worthwhile addition.
As for styling this piece, it’s pretty versatile. Group with smaller blue and white jars, or add one on each windowsill.
