National Museum of Korea 국립중앙박물관

No discussion of Korean art would be complete without the famed blue celadon pottery. The pigment came from the copper oxides in the clay used.

 

Blue celadons were primarily made by the Goryeo kingdom, which ran from 918 to 1392, and were taken by traders throughout the world.

 

While most blue celadons are vases and dishes, this is a very unusual human-shaped water pitcher. I love it.
