This is an outstanding piece. The facial features are wonderful. It has been glazed in the Sancai tradition of Cerulean Blue, Jade Green, and Mustard Yellow. There are additional details in white. This sage is holding a scroll, representing knowledge and authority. The brush washer is huge. All told, a truly wonderful addition to any collection.
