This paper container in the shape of a traditional flowerpot was made during the late Joseon period. It exhibits a decagonal body and is decorated with various animals such as a dragon and a tiger, and the Ten Symbols of Longevity, including a deer, heron, and turtle. The animals are depicted in a folk painting style, with the tiger displaying an amusing face and comical pose similar to the tigers depicted in traditional “tiger and magpie paintings”.
