Description
Though their exact meaning is uncertain, a vital energy radiates from the spiral patterns adorning this vessel. Do they represent a force in nature like the wind? Reptiles? Or simply the imaginative fancy of the artist who applied his brush to the pottery so many centuries ago? We are caught up in their mystery, carried backward and forward along their path, drawn in by their magic. - (PF.0990)
