There is a surrealistic charm about this little vessel,
left long ago as a tomb offering. The body of the pot
is pleasingly round, adorned with a starry sky of
white dots. The human head that grows organically
from the body may represent the deceased, or the
person who left the gift, or merely a guardian spirit.
It reminds us how the essentials of human existence-
-life, death and their attendant passions--have
altered very little with time.
