Scope and content

A multi-colored glazed ceramic artifact. Possibly an ashtray. The main body of the item has the shape (and decoration) of an inverted turtle shell. Passing transversely under this portion, there are circular segments of wire, two of which two of which cross to form an 'X'. Attached to the edge of the main portion are two circular decorations. Opposite these decorations there appear a representation of a seated Buddha who is shown resting on a circular segment between two kettle drum-like decorations. PH1 2006
