This solid vessel demonstrated the combining of function and art. Its curvaceous shape makes it extremely functional during large gatherings when storage is required. Yet the artistic interpretation has been beautifully illustrated, using both sculptural and painted designs. The image on the vessel is of a man kneeling with his hands resting on his knees. His face looks directly ahead, seemingly intent upon something. He is completely nude, with his genitalia visible. The painted design remains simple and clear, allowing the viewer to enjoy the simplicity and beauty of the creative work of art. - (PF.4113)
