The two-handed figure stands in relaxed posture on a base consisting of square and round forms.  At the bottom of each shape stylized lotus petals are incised.  His right hand is extended outwards and would have been holding an arrow and he left arm is extended up to his die to hold a bow.  He wears much of jewelry including anklets bracelets, armlets, necklace and shoulder loops, belts with pendant elements and a sacred thread reaching just below his waist.  He wears a lower garment with incised lines delineating the folds and sections that flare out to either side.  He wears an elaborate crown.  One element extends over his right shoulder, which may either be part of his quiver of arrows or a broken section of a halo. He wears a conical headdress incised with a worn pattern.  His face is sharply stylized with a long straight nose and wide, open eyes.<br />

Ganesha, seated, with four arms
Gift of Marybelle B. Hanna
This is known as a pear shaped bottle vase with widely everted mouth, narrow neck that makes it easy to grasp and a round globular body that is bottom heavy. Some lines encircle the body and neck. The foot is rather high.<br />

Many bronze bottles such as the above two have been excavated from Goryeo tombs built between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries along with celadon vessels. This type of bottle with a long neck and widely flared mouth was also produced in celadon during the Goryeo period. The surfaces of both bottles are severely rusted, while the lower part of the bottles are damaged and perforated. The bottles have five rideges formed by attaching folded copper sheets. The foot of each bottle was made separately from a separate sheet of metal and attached later.
