The globular body of this vessel constricts, and then moves up to a flared mouth. A striated appliquéd band encircles the base of the neck where it joins the base of the lower bowl. Appliquéd to the top of the hollow rattle legs, are modeled deer. They are strikingly formed with prominent ears and antlers, their features having been incised. The whole vessel has been decorated in red and black slip. The resulting object is not only one of aesthetic appeal, but also a direct link with the culture and beliefs of the ancients. - (PF.3656)
