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. - (PF.4070)
