The term Sanghyeong (像形) refers to ceramic vessels crafted in the likeness of animals. When combined with the term Jun (尊), it denotes vessels meant for containing liquids. Specifically, vessels resembling elephants are termed Sangjun (象尊), while those resembling cattle are termed Huijun (犧尊). Historically, Huijun was used for offering sweet rice wine during the spring and summer primary rites, while Sangjun, was used for containing makgeolli during the spring and summer secondary rites.
