This large cup-shaped bowl with a broad averted rim and slightly rolled mouth rim rests on three hollow rattle legs modeled as sea creatures. This vessel is an early example of the V period, and shows a sophisticated integration of the legs with the vessel as a whole. The body of the clay is of a russet color, and is painted with black slip. Such a piece as this would have had great significance as a burial object, endowed with qualities fit for the next world, as well as this. - (PF.3684)
