In traditional Chinese healing, medicine alone could not cure a person’s illness. A physician would strive to balance a patient's vital energy, their yin and yang, as a person is believed to become ill when these two forces lose harmony. The medicinal herbs used to restore balance to a patient's energies were stored in apothecary jars such as this one. The elegant jar is coated in a turquoise green glaze, which drips beautifully down the vessel's sides with irregular movement. Decorated by a simple floral motif, the rustic jar charms with rich color and texture.
