Maebyeong decorated with cranes and clouds, Korea, Goryeo dynasty (918–1392), second half of the 12th century. Stoneware with inlaid decoration under celadon glaze. H. 13 1/4 in. (33.7 cm); Diam. 7 1/2 in. (19.1 cm). Gift of Sadajiro Yamanaka, 1911; 11.8.1 © 2000–2016 The Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The cranes and clouds, popular motifs on Goryeo celadon, are delicately yet expressively rendered. Set against the green color of the glaze, they appear to be floating in the sky.
