The period immediately following the fall of the Han Empire, the Six Dynasties represent a time of extreme political disunity for Ancient China. Paradoxically, this time allowed for the emergence of Buddhist philosophy and the influence of both nomadic and non-Chinese cultures. These vessels are also known as the jar of mind . Several jars of this kind were discovered in the Yunnan area.
