The first artisan fashions the box from soapstone; the second carves the butterfly or dragonfly design; the third brings the work to life with the color of his painting.
Recalls the extensive collection of 12th–17th century Vietnamese ceramics held by our Freer Gallery and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery.
