In traditional Chinese healing, medicine alone could not cure a person’s illness. A physician would strive to balance a patient's vital energy, their yin and yang, as a person is believed to become ill when these two forces lose harmony. The medicinal herbs used to restore balance to a patient's energies were stored in apothecary jars such as this one. Beautifully glazed with a timeless simplicity, these elegant ceramic vessels would have once lined the walls of a Chinese apothecary.
