Description
The subtle, textured geometry of this vessel's surface was perhaps designed so that it could be gripped better in the hand. Its perfumed contents could then be shaken out through the tiny neck hole as a benediction at festivals and ceremonies. Centuries have passed, time has added character to the surface, and yet one can still perceive the faint glow of that ancient hand upon it... - (G.0090)
