Pillow in the form of a reclining girl
Northern China; Jin dynasty (1115-1234)
Cizhou ware, high-fired ceramic with overglaze polychrome
The Avery Brundage Collection
"The representation of girls on a Song pillow, rare in contrast to the frequent representations of boys, suggests a piece made for female use. This finely sculpted pillow features a young girl, her expression well detailed, accompanied by chrysanthemum and plum blossoms."
