Incense Burner (Boshan Lu). 200-100 BC. China, Western Han dynasty (202 BC-AD 9). This incense burner takes the shape of the mountain to represent the mythical land of the immortals, a boundless realm filled with energy. Deities (appearing as hunters) and fantastic beasts roam freely among mists and clouds. The incense smoke coming from the burner creates a mysterious effect, as if the mountain form could attract the immortals with its sense of illusion.
