A boldly-modeled earthenware boar covered with amber (or deep chestnut brown) glaze. The interior of the boar is hollow. Although the object is modest, the potter imbued the boar with a sense of naturalism. Its form, with arched neck, squinty eyes, flat ears, fangs, and long, broad snout, capture the fierce power and stubbornness of an actual boar. The animal's legs are squarely planted on the rectangular ring base.
