Painting directly on white slip was one of several decorative techniques practiced at Tz'u-chou kilns. This pillow features a deer painted in its main register. The animal was an auspicious emblem connoting a wish for long life to Taoists and the hope for official title to Confucian scholars. A variety of auspicious animals and flowers were common decoration on painted Tz'u-chou pillows.
