The incense vessel that you see on this page is fashioned after the shape of a peacock. Its richly detailed plumage has been sculpted on and around the breast in lifelike detail. Zoom in on the miniscule, symmetrical serrations on its body and its slightly open wings. Note the way part of the plumage flourishes up above its back. A curvaceous extension from under its tail functions as a handle, along which are bored holes that would allow the incense to escape. Similar orifices are to be found along the long neck of the peacock, its back and beak, and the tips of its plumage.
