Yixing clay tea jar hand carved with bamboo motif 65ml

This small tea jar is beautiful vessel for conveniently storing a small amount of tea on your tea table. The hand carved bamboo design is part of the four gentleman motif in which four plants the orchid, plum blossom, bamboo and chrysanthemum cleverly represent both the four seasons while reminding us of the treasured qualities of a perfect gentleman. Social harmony, virtue and humanism are an important and enduring theme in many aspects of Chinese culture. Bamboo remains green in the winter which is an indication of its tenacity. It grows straight and has a hollow center representing good virtue and humility.
