The Verity of Grandeur (Achievement) - Vessel, Crystal Chinese Ding
The ancient Chinese considered the earth to be "square". The rock like surface conveys the beauty of the great earth, stable and deliberate. The sturdy and square ding combined with the orderly nipple motif creates an austere quality. The straight planes of the ding and the round nipple motif, the rough rock like surface of the handle and the cut polished handles from interesting contrasts. Sturdy, upright and honest.
