Description
When the servant of Isaac met Rebecca returning from the well (Genesis 24) she might have been carrying water in a vessel such as this one. Graceful in form, with bold yet simple decoration, it reminds us of mankind's age-old desire to surround himself with a beauty that outshines mere function. It is so easy to imagine this jug perched atop the head of some ancient woman as she went, laughing with her friends to collect water. - (P.0164)
