The jar was unearthed from Khotan in southwestern Xinjiang, China. It is presumed to have been made in Yotkan, judging from its shape and the patterns on its surface. Jars made in that region usually have a pair of handles, and feature repeated patterns inscribed on the body, or representations of people and beasts such as lions or griffins on the body.
