Description
What function did this intriguing vessel serve in Biblical times? Was it a baby's bottle? A receptacle for some precious liquid--fine oil or perfume--to be measured drop by drop? A container for medicine, the property of some ancient healer? Beautifully painted in a lively geometric style, with holes so that it may be suspended from threads, and with a handle for pouring, it keeps its ancient secrets to itself. We do not know who might have touched it so long ago, or what comfort it brought to their lives; yet when we handle it today, the energy of its past experience flows through us and we become part of its history. - (P.0499)
