Delicate globular jug with long neck and spout in
the shape of a
naturalistic lynx head with pointed ears, pierced
almond shaped eyes, angular nostril, spiky fangs
projecting from a slightly open jaw.
Bronze artefacts with terminating elements such
as this spout in the form of either birds or
animals, mostly felines, were very popular during
the 11th and 12th centuries in Iran.
