Description
A human head appears at the top of this beautifully contoured, rich vermilion bowl. Traces of resist painting indicate that he wore an elaborate cloth mantle. But in which direction is the metamorphosis taking place? Has the man shed his limbs and ballooned gracefully into a bowl, or is the bowl slowly taking on a human life of its own? - (PF.0611)
