- Deep red copper pigment outlines the petals of the two lotus buds that compose the body of this ewer and accents the leaf-shaped spout and other sculptural details such as the kneeling children on the neck. An identical ewer, registered as a National Treasure in Korea, was found in the tomb of a military ruler, Choe Hang, who died in 1257, on Kanghwa Island, where between 1232 and 1270 the Goryeo court took refuge from repeated Mongol invasions.
