Physical Description

The bowl has a low, narrow foot, and diagonally aring out sides. It is decorated with raised designs on the inner wall, but they are so low relief that it is di cult to recognize what they are. The outer base retains three quartzite spur marks. Damage to a side of the mouth rim and the center of the bowl has been repaired.
