This white porcelain jar exhibits the typical features of jars produced during the late Joseon Period, including an upright mouth, broad shoulders, and a dramatically narrowed base. The jar’s upper and lower parts are decorated with an anuruddha head design, the central part with the main dragon motif, which vividly captures its grotesque appearance.
