From looking at this rotund little pot with humanistic features, we feel the gentle sense of humor of the culture that created it. Perhaps such a vessel acted like a scarecrow, meant to frighten birds and rodents away from its contents. If so, it could not have been particularly effective. For who would be afraid of such a sweet and simple personality? - (PF.0864)
