A celadon ewer dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907) has a phoenix head-shaped lid and spout, making the ewer look like an upright phoenix. A dragon serves as its handle.

Various patterns decorate the ewer, including lotuses, plants and beaded medallions.

As a treasure in the permanent collection of the Palace Museum in Beijing, the ewer combines Persian culture with Chinese decor, reflecting the craftsmanship of the time.
