This round-bodied jar with a spreading rim was probably produced to contain the cremated remains of a Buddhist believer. The hard grey body has traces of natural ash glaze and is sparsely decorated, with a pattern of triangular motifs on top of a row of concentric circles repeated on the shoulder and on the neck.
The hard grey body of this round-bodied stoneware jar has traces of natural ash glaze. It is sparsely decorated with a pattern of triangular motifs on top of a row of concentric circles that are repeated on the shoulder and neck. Dating from the first half of the Unified Silla period (AD 668-918), which began when the kingdom of Silla unified the whole peninsula of Korea, the stamped decoration of circles and triangles is typical of wares from this time.
