Vessel in shape of long beaked sea bird
9800 BCE – 100 CE
Museum Purchase
Jar with a round base, short neck and flaring mouth. Fabric imprints and gently indented lines stretch across the round body of the jar.<br />
<br />
This is a blue-gray, round-bottomed, high-fired stoneware jar with a short neck. Its neck curves outwards towards a widely flared mouth. The edge of the rim is slightly round, and the inner surface of the mouth is flattened. The inner and outer surfaces of the neck show traces of rotation and water smoothing. The body is widest at its upper-middle section, while its surface has been decorated with shallow horizontal lines after the rendering of a dense lattice design. The upper part of the vessel shows traces of an erased paddled pattern, and there are cracks on the inside of the base.<br />
