Description
This vessel is in the shape of a woman with small breasts placed close together. The wide rimmed neck of the vessel represents the head, having very charming features of narrow slits for eyes and mouth, small ears with holes in the center, and incising at the top suggestive of hair. More incising of vertical and horizontal lines within semi-circles is seen on the bulbous body giving the impression of clothing. The simplicity of design and roughness of the incising adds to the character of the vessel, lending it a definite feeling of gentleness and friendliness. - (PF.5336)
