This fascinating piece of earthenware has a
variety of interesting attributes including the
overall depiction of a crocodile-like animal. The
neck of the vessel represents the head and face
of the animal including a long snout with sharp
teeth. The tail curls up at the back as if a handle
to be used while holding the vessel. The animal
sits on a carved pedestal that supports the entire
piece. As a whole, the vessel is a beautiful piece
of workmanship with a matching subject matter.
The molding and etching have been beautifully
executed, creating a timeless piece of art that
can be enjoyed by everyone.
