This brazier, in the shape of Korea’s traditional cauldron, has three faces decorated with demon faces expressed by openwork and incising techniques. It was designed to provide air through the mouth of a demon-face carved openwork. The body of the brazier is supported by three animal legs, each decorated with the face of a demon. The form and the techniques used to decorate this brazier make it a rare item.
