Description
This intriguing pot acts like a window into the realm of the spirits. The haunting face seems part human, part demon with a mouth that appears at once to be grinning and snarling. Perhaps it will react to us depending upon whether good or evil is in our own hearts. The pot must once have contained something very precious to be guarded by such a being. - (PF.0865)
