Shaped and decorated by hand, this vessel glows with the vitality of the human touch. Its patterns of ochre and white are applied with a vigorous brush; their imperfection only adds to the pot's charm. Centuries ago, this vessel was left in a tomb filled with an offering of food or drink. As we hold it today, we can imagine the hands of the person who placed it there as a token of love and respect. For a moment, the connection with that vanished world is direct, immediate. - (PF.1926)
