description

Summary

Tiger-shaped urinal in celadon glaze (Six Dynasties, 220 - 589). The greyish-white clay body is covered with a yellowish-green glaze. Huzi-tiger pots derive their name from their shape which is like a crouching tiger. Huzi are often seen among ceramic burial objects and are usually regarded as chamber pots. - Hong Kong Heritage Museum, Sha Tin, Hong Kong, 18.5.2015
