. . . three incense burners whose basins were surmounted by animals nearly alive in their detail--roaring lion, fierce dragon, wise tortoise. (p. 67)
. . . in the center was a new set of nested boxes, inscribed with a splendid floral design. (p. 67)
The bowl was covered with molded petals that overlapped one another--and held a secret . . . (p. 67)
Min was making vases in the melon shape that had so pleased the emissary... (p. 73) [He] was inscribing lotus blossoms and peonies between the ribbed lines of one of the melon vases. (p. 77)
. . . Tree-ear reached into his waist pouch and slowly withdrew a small object. He handed it to Crane-man. . . . A monkey . . . smaller than the palm of Tree-ear's hand. (p. 105)
The path to the Rock of the Falling Flowers was steep, and Tree-ear leaned forward, sometimes on all fours, as he climbed. (p. 120)
. . . wonder of wonders, the palace had celadon roof tiles. Tree-ear stopped walking. He had heard of these roof tiles. years ago, before his time, potters in Ch'ulp'o had been engaged in the enormous task of making these very tiles. . . How he wished he could examine them more closely! Even from where he stood he could make out their intricate relief work. (p. 135)
It is called the 'Thousand-Cranes Vase.' Its maker is unknown. (p. 177)
