Seifū Yohei III
Ovoid minature vase with black glaze
early 1880s - early 1910s
Bequest of Margaret Watson Parker
An angel, draped with a flowing red mantle, descends on the left from a bank of clouds. He holds a scepter and twisting scroll in his left hand while he points with his right toward a white dove encircled by a halo of light that descends toward a woman dressed in long robes and a veil. She sits, holding a book open on the lectern before her, and draws back slightly with her right hand raised and her eyes downcast. Six cherubim sit above on the edge of the cloudbank, which opens to reveal a male figure barely visible in the blinding light that fills the cloud.

This is a wide-bellied, small pot with slightly concave shoulders. The pot's mouth is slighlty wider than the foot. A black pattern is painted on a white surface: this complex, linear design starts with a very small triangular path and winds around itself again and again like a maze. Mazes meet to form eight-pointed intersecting star pattern.
